The Ministry of National Defense has undertaken a string of activities to support families of war heroes and contributors to the national revolutionary cause on the occasion of the War Invalids and Martyrs’ Day, which falls on July 27.

The ministry has spent 1.67 billion VND (78,766 USD) visiting wounded and sick soldiers under treatment at some nursing homes as well as many families of war invalids and martyrs and Vietnamese heroic mothers in Hanoi and other localities.

Besides, the ministry’s officials came to visit and present gifts to families of cadres and soldiers who laid down their lives while protecting the country’s sovereignty over sea and islands and serving in remote and mountainous areas.

The ministry has directed its units to collaborate with stakeholders to generate jobs for offspring of seriously wounded and sick soldiers.

It has also continued to realise a programme on building 1,000 houses for wounded soldiers, heroic mothers and those who had rendered great services to the national revolutionary cause.-VNA
