Provinces in the Central Highlands have received over 240 billion VND (11.4 million USD) in assistance for the implementation of social security work since 2013, according to the region’s Steering Committee.

The money has been used to build new schools and health centres in remote areas.

The funds have also been used to build thousands of new houses for ethnic minority members, a centre for children with disability to integrate into society, and present thousands of breeding cows to impoverished households.

The grants have been sourced from banks, enterprises and charity organisations.-VNA
