As many as 100 Tet gifts, each worth 600,000 VND (28 USD), come to the blind in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on January 9.

The gifts were presented by the Consulate General of South Africa in Ho Chi Minh City and Vien Dong Assurance Corporation as part of their annual charity programme aimed at helping disadvantaged people, especially blind children, enjoy a warm Lunar New Year holiday.

Set up in 1993, the province’s association for the blind has provided career guidance and functional rehabilitation for more than 3,000 members.-VNA
