Hanoi (VNA) – A fund will be raised for the construction of a great solidarity house of Vietnam’s ethnic groups in the Truong Sa island district, south central Khanh Hoa province, according to the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF)  Central Committee.

A fundraising will take place during the upcoming visit to the district and DK1 platform by a delegation of 180 outstanding entrepreneurs, overseas Vietnamese and people from all walks of life. The visit, jointly held by the VFF Central Committee and the Navy High Command, is slated for this April.

The great solidarity house of Vietnam’s ethnic groups will serve as a venue for visitors from mainland and soldiers, officials and locals in the island district. It will also be a shelter for fishermen and a cultural and sports centre for islanders.

The house is designed to have three stories with steel-reinforced cement frame to be resilient to the extreme weather conditions on the island.

The VFF expects to mobilise about 45 billion VND for the construction of the work. Fund raising time is from March 21 to the end of August and may be extended to September.

The VFF will set up a committee for receiving donations. Sponsors can contribute to the fund through bank transfer to the VFF account number 1483201009159 at the Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam (Agirbank), Thu do branch.-VNA
