Vientiane (VNA) – A delegation of the Vietnam Red Cross Society’s Hanoi chapter shared experience and carried out humanitarian activities in Laos’ capital of Vientiane on August 22.

In the outlying district of Sangthong, they shared first aid experience with 50 local government workers and kindergarten and primary school teachers. This has been one of the main cooperation activities of the two capital cities’ red cross chapters over the years.

The two sides also made a fact-finding tour to prepare for the building of a house for a Lao war veteran who studied in Vietnam.

Additionally, the Hanoi delegation presented five cows and 100 gift packages to disadvantaged families in Sangthong district. They also delivered aid worth some 300 million VND (about 12,860 USD) to people affected by the dam break in Attapeu province on July 23.

The support showed the Vietnamese people’s desire to help local residents and enhance the friendship between the two nations.-VNA
