Earlier, the Commando Officer Training School’s Party Committee worked closely with the Lien Son commune (Luong Son, Hoa Binh)’s Party Committee, People's Council and Committee to discuss the construction of the gratitude house.

The school funded VND 60 million for the construction of the house, while the remaining cost was covered by the family, local authorities, and local people.

In addition, the school donated some working days to complete the project as scheduled.

* On the same day, Company 74 of Army Corps 15 handed over two gratitude houses to needy households in Gia Lai province.

Accordingly, the houses were granted to Luu Dinh Thanh’s family in Doan Ket hamlet, Ia Dok commune and Dinh Thi Hanh’s family in Ia Tang hamlet, Ia Gla commune in Duc Co district.

Both families had been facing housing difficulties. Their children are young, sick, and their families have low incomes.

Each 50sq.m house, includes a living room, bedroom, and kitchen. In addition to the fund of more than VND 120 million, Company 74 also mobilized workers and employees to help build the houses.
