Fundraising campaign for the Central of Vietnam

In October 2010, the historical flood in Central Provinces left its devastating aftermath for the residents. Understanding such a huge loss, VNU University of Economics and Business collaborated with its partners, including Xuan Hoa Joint Stock Company, Chan Khong Monastery UK, Thriive Hanoi Project, Tran Quoc Tuan Middle & High school (Military Science Academy), cMedzavy Pharma Joint Stock Company, brought gifts to residents in Nghe An and Ha Tinh on December 18-19th, 2020.

Over the last October's flood, VNU University of Economics and Business sought for donations to support the central of Vietnam to overcome the flood damage. In December 2020, UEB and its partners donated 300 sets of chairs, 150 bicycles, thousands of books, and dozens of boxes of dry water to help people in the flooded areas.

The delegation left Hanoi at 5 a.m. on December 18th with 15 members led by the Vice Rector of the University of Economics and Business - Assoc.Prof.Dr. Nguyen Manh Tuan.

The first stop on the business trip was at the Fourth Military Region. On behalf of the delegation, Assoc.Prof.PhD. Nguyen Manh Tuan asked the leaders of the Fourth Military Region to deliver gifts to 34 families who sacrificed their lives while doing their tasks in the flood-hit Central Provinces in 2020.

 

The next stop for the delegation is Cam Thach Primary School, Cam Xuyen District, Ha Tinh Province. The delegation was warmly welcomed by local people, school leaders and students. Vice-Rector Nguyen Manh Tuan shared his thoughts about the loss of people in deprived areas, especially children who lack the needed facilities to study at school. He hoped that small loving gifts from the universities, its students as well as donors, would be part of help in reducing the difficulties facing the residents.

 

 

 
Receiving the gifts, the pupils of Cam Thach Primary School held tight their books and rode bicycles around the school. Seeing the joy of the children, the delegation felt warmhearted for having held such a meaningful activity.
 

 

Continuing the business trip, the delegation visited Thach Thang Primary School in Thu Ha District. At the school, 50 sets of chairs, 4 boxes of notebooks, 8 carton boxes of hand wash, and 15 bicycles to the children. Touched by the kindness of the delegation, the Principal of Thach Thang Primary School sent their thanks and committed to using the gift for the right purpose and right people.
 

Due to limited conditions, the delegation asked the Ha Tinh Provincial Military Command to deliver gifts to four other schools, including Bac Son Primary School (Thach Ha District), Loc Yen Primary School (Huong Khe District), Phuc Dong Primary School (Huong Khe District), Huong Lam Primary School (Huong Khe District). For each school, the delegation sent 50 sets of chairs, 4 boxes of notebooks, 1 large box of notebooks, 8 boxes of liquid hand wash and 15 bicycles.

On the second day, the delegation held a visit to Dong Loc Junction (Can Loc District) and the tomb of the former Secretary General Tran Phu (Tung Anh, Duc Tho). At the Dong Loc Junction, the delegation offered incense and bowed to show their respect to the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the country. Afterward, the delegation heard the stories and trophies of ten young girls who heroically volunteered to fight and died there, leaving traces from the bombing of the U.S. empire.

 

 

Leaving the Dong Loc Junction, the delegation moved to visit the grave of the former Secretary General Tran Phu - the first Secretary General of the Communist Party of Vietnam. The delegation was told about the life of the former Secretary General as well as his revolutionary activities before being captured by the enemy and sacrificed.

Not only did the business trip show the empathy of the university and its partners for the struggling local people in the flooded areas, but it, regarded as a meaningful political activity, also helped teaching staff of the university deeply understand the revolutionary history and the patriotic tradition of our country.
