After conquering a challenging 430km distance, enduring 12 hours of treacherous and uphill roads, the mission to deliver love and joy to the children reached its destination at dawn on May 6. The event took place at Sinh Phinh Semi-boarding Secondary School, nestled in the heart of Sinh Phinh commune, Tua Chua district, Dien Bien province.
The program is being executed by the Faculty of Pharmacy at Thanh Do University in collaboration with coordinating units, which include the Ngoc Lan Charity Group, Truong Tho Pharmaceutical Joint Stock Company, and Trung Tin Educational Equipment Company. Additionally, the program is fueled by the generosity of kind-hearted individuals and sponsors like Mr. Manh, who have made significant donations.
In this endeavor to empathize with the children in the highlands and support their holistic development and education, the Volunteer Union has granted study promotion scholarships, educational grants, learning materials, essential supplies, food, medicines, and nutritional supplements.
The amount of money, items… with a total value of up to 200 million VND has been donated to the children in the highlands, partly aiding their comprehensive development and education.
The bookshelf at Sinh Phinh Semi-boarding Secondary School has been supplemented with advanced books, storybooks, and a well-organized scientific library by the Volunteer Union. This helps the children gain additional knowledge and understanding, thereby providing them with more motivation and intelligence to strive for success, overcome obstacles and challenges, and improve their own lives as well as the lives of their families and those around them.
