NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan presents gifts to Vietnamese Heroic Mothers

The Party, State, and people always remember the contributions of Vietnamese Heroic Mothers, war invalids, and martyrs to the country, she emphasized.

She highlighted policies and guidelines for those who rendered service to the revolution, most notably the bestowal of the title “Vietnamese Heroic Mother” to nearly 140,000 women over the past 25 years.

According to the chief legislator, the NA Standing Committee is scheduled to hear a Government report on the amendment of incentives for contributors to the country, including Vietnamese Heroic Mothers.

Tributes to contributors to the country have also received a warm response from the community, she added, urging ministries, especially the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), agencies, and localities to take better care of the group, particularly Vietnamese Heroic Mothers.

MOLISA Minister Dao Ngoc Dung reported that there are 4,962 Vietnamese Heroic Mothers who are still alive and receiving care from agencies, organizations, and their families.

On the same day, the Ministry of National Defense held a meeting with 300 Vietnamese Heroic Mothers on the occasion of the 73rd Wounded and Fallen Soldiers' Day, which falls on July 27.
