Almost 500 people in Son Thinh Commune, Huong Son district, the central province of Ha Tinh on October 24 were provided with free medical check-ups and medicine, aiming to treat digestive disorders, conjunctivitis and fever.

Poor people and those who rendered services to the revolution affected by the recent floods in the locality were the beneficiaries of the support.

All the costs of the medicine, worth 30 million VND (1,410 USD), were funded by the Young Doctors’ Association of Ha Tinh General Hospital.

After the floodings in the province, the Ha Tinh provincial Youth Union mobilised more than 1,800 youngsters to help repair and clean houses and schools in the districts of Huong Son, Huong Khe, Vu Quang, Duc Tho and Thach Ha.

Apart from the on-site volunteers, the union also called on nearly 1,000 youths from the provincial organisations, police, universities and colleges in the locality to join hands in assisting people in flooded areas.

According to the union’s Permanent Deputy Secretary Nguyen The Hoan, through launching appeals in organisations, enterprises and agencies in the province, the union received donations worth over 1.5 billion VND (70,500 USD), including money, food, clothes and blankets for people in flooded areas.-VNA
