The space of the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Culture House was filled with laughter and spring music as more than 1,000 students gathered together in the area celebrating Tet far away from home.

Presenting gifts to needy students

The program aimed to take care of disadvantaged students who are studying at universities, colleges and academies in the city to celebrate Tet away from home, mostly from Khanh Hoa province or Northern and Central Highlands provinces. Among them, many from remote localities used to celebrate Tet far away from home for two years or more. There are many reasons why they chose to celebrate Tet in Ho Chi Minh City.

On the occasion of the lunar New Year 2023, the city’s Vietnam Student Association and Student Support Center also carried out many activities, such as year-end party, presenting gifts and New Year’s lucky money for 1,000 poor students, among others.
