The central province of Quang Binh will provide about 312 tonnes of rice aid for 5,211 local students in 48 schools in six poor districts.

Accordingly, each student will receive 15 kilogrammes of rice each month over a period of four months.

The provincial People’s Committee has asked the Department of Education and Training in collaboration with the local districts’ People Committees to distribute the rice to eligible beneficiaries before April 10.

The rice aid for poor student is part of more than 1,200 tonnes of rice granted by the Government to the province to help poor people overcome the current between-crop food shortage.-VNA
