Nearly 30 volunteers from the Republic of Korea (RoK) and students of the Da Nang College of Foreign Languages participated in a charitable programme in Gio Linh district in the central province of Quang Tri from August 14-18. 

The volunteers trained parents of disabled children how to prevent ulcers and improve dental care while repainting walls and repairing equipment at a rehabilitation centre for the disabled in the district. 

They also organised exchange activities for children with disabilities and their parents in Cua Viet beach, and presented them with essential commodities like detergent, soaps, shampoos and cooking utensils. 

Manager at the rehab centre Ta Thi Tri hailed the programme as a move to bring about happiness and hope to the children. 

Quang Tri is one of the localities most heavily affected by the war. The province is home to more than 37,000 disabled people, accounting for 6.2 percent of its population. Most of the families with disabled members are living in difficult conditions.-VNA
