At the event, local youths presented 1,000 liters of diesel, hundreds of light bulbs, medical kits, health insurance cards and national flags to local fishermen, encouraging them in their offshore fishing activities.

In addition, the Khanh Hoa Youth Union granted scholarships and bicycles to the fishermen’s children, while the provincial Border Guard Command handed over gifts and water filters to needy households in Ninh Van commune.

Local fishermen also received free medical check-ups and medicines.

Annually organized since 2012, the festival has encouraged local youths to further join hands in safeguarding national sovereignty over the seas and islands.
