The southern province of Bac Lieu presented 40 houses to poor households of the Khmer ethnic group in the locality on February 9.

The houses, built at a total cost of 45 million VND, are a joint effort of the Party, State and local community to give every family a warm and joyful Tet holiday.

The new homes are part of two projects to build 1,000 houses for poor Khmer families financed by local funds and the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO).-VNA
