Doctors provide health check-ups for revolutionary contributors.

These activities have been carried out under a plan on promoting policies prior to the 72nd Vietnamese Wounded Soldiers' and Martyrs' Day (July 27). The plan has been approved by the Defense Minister.

According to the plan, teams will promote searching and collecting remains of fallen soldiers, work with local authorities to hand over and hold solemn memorial services for newly-collected remains and organize various tribute activities for martyrs.

For  the Vietnamese Wounded Soldiers' and Martyrs' Day, the Ministry of National Defense, in association with the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, the Nhan dan (People) Newspaper and the Ministry of Public Security, will co-organize a ceremony to honor outstanding national  contributors in 2019.

Prior to the day, the Military Library has exhibited more than 100 books and newspapers about wounded soldiers, fallen soldiers and national contributors.

Through novels, short stories, memoirs and letters, viewers will learn more about sacrifices of soldiers during the national liberation and defense cause as well as about policies for wounded soldiers, martyrs and families of national contributors.

National contributors receive gifts.

Meanwhile, the Hanoi municipal People’s Committee has decided to allocate more than VND 10 billion to organize activities for national contributors in the city and set a target to mobilize VND 22 billion for upgrading war cemeteries and houses of the national contributors. 

The Quang Binh provincial Martyr Families Support Association has been established and organized first activities for needy families of fallen soldiers, heroic Vietnamese mothers and wounded soldiers in the province. The association has assisted relevant units to identify remains of martyrs who have been buried in Khe Sanh War Cemetery and Road 9 National Martyrs’ Cemetery.

The medical staff of Central Military Hospital 108 has provided free health check-ups and medicines to wounded and sick soldiers in nine communes and seven wards of Hanoi. They also provided national contributors with health counselling and visited and presented gifts to wounded and sick soldiers under treatment at convalescent centers in Thai Binh, Ha Nam, Bac Ninh and Phu Tho provinces. 

The hospital also sent a mission to offer incense in commemoration of fallen soldiers at the War Cemetery of Yen Trach commune, Thai Nguyen province’s Phu Luong district and presented gifts to outstanding local policy beneficiaries.
