In the early morning of the day when Unit 92, FAC financial & accounting consultant Co., Ltd., Military Hospital 268 of MR4’s Department of Political Affairs, and the Border Post of A Dot Border Gate under the Thua Thien Hue provincial Border Guard Command jointly launched the program “Joining hands towards A Luoi,” many local people gathered at the sporting hall of Unit 92 despite the rain and cold wind.

Teachers and students of Huong Lam Primary School happily receive significant gifts.

In this program, alongside gifts, including cash and other necessities, local people were provided with free health check-ups, health consultation, and medicines.

Ho Thi Phuong from Cur Xo Hamlet, Lam dot commune, A Luoi district shared that she has a headache and chronic asthma. “Examined and given medicines by doctors from Unit 92 and Military Hospital 268, I feel reassured. A lot of thanks to the troops!” Phuong said.

Warm atmosphere at A Roang Kindergarten

The program was also held in A Roang Kindergarten in A Roang commune and Huong Lam Primary School in Lam Dot commune, during which 100 gifts were presented. Saying thanks to the program, Ho Thi Hanh, headmistress of A Roang Kindergarten, said that many disadvantaged students are studying in this border school. The school wishes to receive more gifts from organizations and individuals to facilitate students’ study.

Learning that Lam Dot, Dong Son, A Roang, and Huong Phong communes in A So Defense-Economic Area are badly affected by Agent Orange/Dioxin and local people, with over 90 percent belonging to ethnic minority groups, are living in hard conditions, Unit 92 joined hands with other units to hand over 125 gifts to victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin, policy beneficiary families, poor households, and 100 other gifts to needy students. The gifts, worth nearly VND 200 million, were a small source of encouragement to the recipients.

Regarding the “Joining hands towards A Luoi” program, Senior Colonel Luu Duc Chinh, Secretary of the Party Committee and Political Commissar of Unit 92, said that to ensure the high efficiency of this program, the unit coordinated with local authorities to learn about plights of local people and make decision on the recipients.

The official said that for seriously-ill people, the unit visited their houses to check their health and present gifts.

Unit 92’s practical activities gave timely support to disadvantaged people, helping strengthen the relations between troops and people, maintain political security, social order and safety in border areas.
