The Lawerence S. Ting Memorial Fund on August 25 presented 200 wheelchairs worth 360 million VND (17,140 USD) to people with disabilities in the northern province of Dien Bien.

The donation is part of a programme co-sponsored by the fund and Phu My Hung Corp. to support the disabled nationwide by equipping them with a means of transport, thus facilitating their daily activities and social integration.

Earlier this year, the two donors gave 33 computers and computer-connected microscopes to a boarding school for ethnic minority students in Dien Bien.-VNA
