The event was part of the series of activities, themed “The ten-year journey for beloved Hoang Sa (Paracel) – Truong Sa (Spratly),” to enhance public awareness of and arouse their love and responsibility for national sea and islands and connect hearts for beloved Truong Sa.

The activities include the “National sea and islands in my heart” contest and a program to build “For beloved Truong Sa” projects.

During these activities, the organizing panel presents five reading rooms for troops and people in Truong Sa, gives financial assistance to build houses for the needy, and hands over 3,000 scholarships to needy children in coastal areas and on islands in the 2022 – 2023 academic year.

Over the past years, the “For beloved Hoang Sa – Truong Sa” Club has called on social sources to donate more than VND 181 billion to take care of children in coastal areas and on islands.
