Last year, military units actively and proactively carried out a number of activities for children, such as honoring students with good academic records, assisting 39 handicapped children in integrating into community, taking good care of nearly 2,150 ethnic minority children.

Notably, the CPFC well managed the Fund for Children of the Ministry of National Defense to provide support for children with heart defects, fatal diseases, disabilities and those whose parents are martyrs and other needy children.

Moreover, local border posts provided health checkups for poor children, and supported disadvantaged children for their schooling.

At the ceremony, the CPFC presented gifts in cash and kind to children of martyrs and those adopted by border posts in Lao Cai, Son La and Ha Giang provinces.
