Fishermen in the central city of Quy Nhon in Binh Dinh province received 200 medical kits from the Ministry of Health’s trade union under a programme to support fishermen.

Speaking at the event, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Mai Thanh Thang said the province has 3,069 offshore fishing boats with 2,100 labourers. He stressed that the medical kits are very useful for fishermen when at sea.

In the near future, localities and organisations are striving to provide 30,000 medical kits for all the country’s offshore fishing boats.-VNA
