The number of gifts presented amounted to 500, targeting the groups in Dinh Hoa district.

In Thai Nguyen, the authorities launched a programme for aiding the poor on Tet that raised over 34.48 billion VND (1.52 million USD). The fund has been used to finance tens of thousands of gifts for the local poor and near-poor families; as well as necessities and food for people.

Tet, the longest and most important traditional festival in Vietnam, lasts from January 31 through February 4 this year.
