A coast guard distributes leaflets on laws to local people.

During the program, Flotilla 42’s law-related orators disseminated information about situations of the sea and islands, regulations against illegal, unreported, unregulated fishing, the Party’s guidelines and the State’s laws on safeguarding national maritime sovereignty in the new situation and basic contents of the Vietnam Coast Guard Law 2018 to local fishermen.

Meanwhile, the Coast Guard Region 4 Command presented 40 gifts to local policy beneficiary families and revolutionary contributors; 10 medical bags, portraits of Uncle Ho, and national flags to fishermen in the commune.

Portraits of Uncle Ho presented to local people

Speaking highly of the practical and humane significance of the program, head of the district Mass Mobilization Commission Nguyen Van Khoa stressed that it demonstrated the country’s tradition of “When drinking water, remember its source” and “gratitude paying” towards great sacrifices of fallen troops, heroic Vietnamese mothers and policy beneficiaries. It also upheld the tradition of solidarity, compassion, and timely sharing to encourage disadvantaged fishermen and students to rise in life. These activities, as the local official said, showed the responsibility and care of the coast guard force in general and Flotilla 42 in particular for needy coastal people, driving them to weather difficulties and continue to reach out to sea.
