A delegation of 170 young overseas Vietnamese from 26 countries around the globe on July 13 toured the central province of Nghe An and visited the hometown of late President Ho Chi Minh.

The young expatriates explored the relic site dedicated to Hoang Thi Loan – President Ho Chi Minh’s mother, and the Kim Lien relic site where they had a chance to visit the house in which the great national leader was born and grew up.

Saly Truong, 19, from the Czech Republic, said she is moved to see with her own eyes the simple life of President Ho Chi Minh and his family, which she has only known of through books and newspapers.

Sharing Saly’s feeling, Nguyen Hai Trieu from Slovakia said through the trip, he has more motivation to study harder so that he can contribute to the development of Vietnam, following the example of the great leader.

The tour was part of activities in the framework of the annual Vietnam Summer Camp organised by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs.

The programme aims to create opportunities for young oversea Vietnamese to get better understanding about the history, culture and tradition of their homeland, thus fostering the solidarity between oversea Vietnamese with their fellows at home.

The youngsters will travel across Vietnam and engage in a series of activities until July 27.-VNA
