Volunteers from the Republic of Korea (RoK) are joining in numerous social activities to support disadvantaged people in the central province of Quang Tri.

A team of volunteers sent by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) provided free check-ups, treatment and medicines for orphans and poor households in the locality.

The agency also presented 100 blankets, 80 pillows and 60 sweaters to the elderly and children living at the province’s welfare centre.

On the occasion, a KOICA-funded programme was launched at Trieu Phong district to rebuild schools, cultural houses and medical stations damaged by the recent flood.

Earlier, the agency and Quang Tri authorities signed a Memorandum of Understanding on December 3 on their cooperation plan between 2014 and 2017, aiming to step up local poverty reduction, reform administrative procedures and curb corruption.-VNA
