Thai Nguyen (VNA) – A programme entitled “Border spring-Island Tet 2019” was held in the northern province of Thai Nguyen on December 10, drawing over 1,300 participants, including lecturers, students and young people.

The event was co-organised by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCYU) of Thai Nguyen province, the youth club for sea and islands under the HCYU Central Committee, the High Command of the Vietnam People’s Navy and the Vietnam Youth Museum.

The participants were updated on the country’s borderlines, sea and islands, thus raising awareness of their significance in national building and safeguarding.

A photo exhibition highlighting the Vietnamese youth’s participation in protecting the country’s sovereignty was held as part of the event.

On the occasion, the organisers presented gifts to four families of officers and soldiers who are working in border and island areas and six disadvantaged students in the province.

Organisations and individuals in the province also donated gifts to support soldiers in border and island areas as the traditional Lunar New Year (Tet) is coming.-VNA
