Vice Chairman of the municipal People's Committee Duong Tan Hien highly appreciated the support of FPT Group and the Hope Fund for their donations in the context of the difficult situation, saying that the support has contributed to basically easing obstacles facing the city’s education sector in organizing online teaching.

He expressed his hope that the city will continue to receive more support from organizations and businesses in the coming time.

Director of FPT Telecom in Can Tho Tran Minh Huan said with the desire to join hands in supporting online learning and teaching during the social distancing period, in October 2021, FPT and the Hope Fund, will provide computers and online learning packages for 3,300 disadvantaged students in COVID-19 pandemic-hit areas in seven southern localities, which are applying online learning and teaching.

In response to the “Telecommunications services and computers for children” program launched by the Ministry of Information and Communications, Can Tho city has campaigned to mobilize support of equipment for 1,908 pupils who cannot participate in online learning.

On the same day, the People’s Committee of the Mekong Delta province of Long An organized a ceremony to present tablets to local disadvantaged students.

More than one month since the “Telecommunications services and computers for children” program was launched, telecommunications businesses operating in Long An have provided 4G sim cards and internet access charges for students with difficult circumstances, while many organizations and businesses also contributed to the program.

Director of the provincial Department of Education and Training Nguyen Thanh Tiep said that the program will continue to be implemented in the coming time.
