Border troops help local people harvest rice.

Accordingly, the emulation movement has been implemented comprehensively and regularly, in combination with the patriotic emulation movements in the locality.

They have helped people in 14 border communes reclaim hundreds of hectares of rice fields, yielding 3.5 tons per hectare. Therefore, the life local ethnic minority groups have improved.

They have also joined local festivals and mobilized local people to eradicate unsound customs.

Annually, the unit organizes many meaningful programs, such as “Border spring warms up people’s hearts,” “Whole-People Border Festive Day,” among others. It has also mobilized more than VND 16 billion from units and sponsors; offered 8,707 gifts, eight tons of rice; handed over 102 gratitude and “Great Unity” houses to needy people, to name but a few.
