Senior Lieutenant General Do Can, Deputy Director of the General Department of Politics of the Vietnam People’s Army chaired the event.

Over the past time, the Tien Giang provincial Party organization and authorities have always overcome difficulties and made efforts to contribute to ensuring policies for national contributors and social security. The province currently has over 130,000 policy beneficiaries and national contributors.

During the get-together

During the get-together, General Can inquired after their health and presented gifts to the national contributors, while informing them of gratitude activities conducted by the military over the past time.

In 2020, military agencies and units have built more than 570 houses, worth more than VND 35.6 billion, taken care of 1,853 Vietnamese heroic mothers, presented 40 savings books, provided free health check-ups and medicines to over 46,100 people, and allocated VND 10 billion to assist convalescent centers, friendship villages, and the Vietnam Association for Agent Orange/Dioxin victims to take care of wounded troops and those in need.

Especially, over the past days, due to the severe consequences of the flooding that has caused significant losses for people in the Central region, the MND directed its affiliated units in Military Region 4 to send troops and vehicles to conduct search and rescue. Unfortunately, 33 troops were killed in landslides during these rescue missions.

Concluding the event, General Can expressed his hope that the delegates would continue promoting revolutionary traditions, contributing to local development in the time to come.
