Quang An commune is situated in Tam Giang lagoon area, often affected by natural disasters. In addition, due to the shortage of a cultural house, An Xuan Tay villagers find it difficult to hold community gatherings.

Delegates inaugurate the house.

Acknowledging the situation and to meet the aspiration of the local Party committee, authorities, and people, the Ministry of National Defense assigned the ADAF Service to survey, design, and build the house as a gift to An Xuan Tay village.

After three months of construction since July 1, the 362 sq.m two-storey house was completed and presented before the start of the rainy season. The house was built with VND 2 billion support from the ADAF Service, other financial assistance and working days from local authorities and people.

Maj. Gen. Pham Truong Son presents gifts to local disadvantaged families, and a set of speakers to An Xuan Tay village.

Addressing the event, Major General Pham Truong Son, Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army, attributed the completion of the house ahead of the schedule to the thorough direction of the Party Committee and Chain-of-Command of the ADAF Service, the close coordination and safe and quality performance of Engineering Brigade 28 under the ADAF Service, and the support of local Party committee, authorities and people.

A representative of the Military Region 4 Command gives the village a gift package.

The deputy chief of the General Staff hoped that local leaders and people will make use of, protect, and bring into play this facility which is in depth of the troops and people solidarity to well perform its functions as a cultural gathering place for local people and a place for locals to take shelters during occurrence of natural disasters to minimize disaster-caused damage.
