Handing over life jackets to a fisherman

Over the past year, Coast Guard Region 3 well implemented the mass mobilization work, organizing 100 meetings to popularize information and knowledge relating to national seas and islands to over 1 million people, sending 825 troops to localities to help develop local economy and build a cultural lifestyle in residential areas, raising hundreds of millions of VND for local gratitude funds, as well as sharing experiences in working at high sea and training basic skills of search and rescue for over 1,000 fishermen, to name just a few.

Similar programs will also be held in Coast Guard Regions 1, 2 and 4 in the coming time.
