HCM City (VNA) – Ho Chi Minh City’s Youth Social Work Centre is organising entertainment programmes for children, especially disadvantaged kids on the outskirts of the city and the provinces of An Giang, Tay Ninh and Binh Phuoc to enjoy the Mid-autumn Festival which falls on October 4 this year.

The festival is annually held on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar.

In the programmes, traditional games and food stalls are set up for these children to enjoy.

The centre also is presenting more than 3,000 gifts and scholarships to children and those who have excellent school results but financial difficulties.

These programmes started on September 23 and will last until October 1. In HCM City, they were held in the outlying districts of Can Gio and Cu Chi last weekend.-VNA
