The Tin Tuc (News) daily newspaper of the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) in collaboration with the Nam Duong Investment JSC on May 21 presented 800 cans of powder milk to ethnic children in Hoang Khai commune, Yen Son district of northern Tuyen Quang province.

The milk donation is part of the “Accompanying disadvantaged areas” programme that was launched by the newspaper in August 2012 to assist poor people in natural calamity-prone areas nationwide.

This is the second time the programme brought help to Tuyen Quang. Last year, the newspaper and the company donated 200 cans of milk to ethnic children in the province’s Lang Can commune, Lam Binh district.

The programme has so far helped children from poor families in Son La, Ha Giang, Thanh Hoa and Ha Tinh provinces.-VNA
