Hau Giang (VNA) – More than a dozen social works totalled 40.1 billion VND (1.79 million USD) funded by the Vietnam Industrial Bank (VietinBank) were handed over to the Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang at a ceremony on January 4.

The facilities, including five kindergartens, six communal infirmaries and three charity houses were built in remote areas in the province.

They are expected to help promote local education and health care services and realise the province’s targets that all local schools and medical stations meet national standards.

Over the past years, ViettinBank has funded the building of hundreds of social works in Hau Giang, worth nearly 117 billion VND (5.22 million USD), said VietinBank Chairman Nguyen Van Thang.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Lu Van Hung said last year, the province created jobs for more than 20,000 labourers and provided vocational training for 8,600 people, contributing to bringing the rate of local poor and near poor households to below 6.3 percent and 5.8 percent, respectively.-VNA
