PANO – Soliders of Border Post 629 have helped provide the local people in the A Luoi mountainous district in Thua Thien-Hue Province with VND 5 million to improve their soil for cultivation and to develop their household economies.

As a result, the local people's living standards have been considerably improved. They now can breed cattle, poultry and fish, as well as cultivate rice on their own. As well, the local children now have more chances to go to school.

With the New Year coming, Border Post 269 has presented gifts, valued at nearly VND 10 million, to the village patriarchs and social welfare policy beneficiaries.
