The annual program of the command aims to bring a happy Tet (lunar New Year) to needy people in the border communes as well as deepen military-civilian ties. This is also an occasion to honor ethnic people in the areas for their contribution to the national border protection and ensuring political security and social orders in border areas.

Local people together with border guards, making chung cakes

In the framework of this year’s program, many activities were held such as art performance, folk games. Especially, locals, together with border guards, made chung cakes (square sticky rice cakes) and buy necessities at Zero-VND stalls launched by the Lai Chau provincial Border Guard Command and Phong Tho District Women’s Union.

Addressing the event, the Lai Chau provincial Border Guard Command’s Political Commissar Senior Colonel Nguyen Van Hung affirmed that the management and protection of border landmarks, border security, and COVID-19 prevention and control in the area over the past time have been ensured thanks to the local authorities and ethnic people in the commune. Therefore, the border spring program was a gratitude activity towards the ethnic minorities, hoping them to have a happy Tet 2022.

On this occasion, the unit presented nearly 400 gifts to policy and needy households and students in the locality.
