The Vietnam News Agency (VNA) and the Association of Agent Orange Victims in central Ninh Thuan province have funded the building of a house for the family of Barau Thi Tieu of the Raglai ethnic minority group.

Tieu made a substantial contribution to Vietnam ’s revolution and her son suffers badly from the effects of the dioxin. The key to the new home in Gio village, Ma Noi commune, Ninh Son district, was handed over to the family on June 13.

The VNA donated the 30 million VND needed to build the house.

Over the years, the VNA’s Fund for Agent Orange Victims has been providing assistance to the victims in Ninh Thuan.-VNA
