Heroic Vietnamese mothers and war invalids will receive VND1 million each, double the amount last year, while a total VND761 million (US$33,000) will be presented as gifts to invalids who are outstanding business owners in 30 communes and districts.
A survey found that the city has 7,566 war-hero households that need funds for home repairs at a total cost of VND402 billion (US$17.4 million), with the State and city administration having agreed to provide VND230 billion (US$10 million).
As of May 10, 4,825 households had completed home building or repairs, 63.8 percent of the total, while 2,205 others are in the process, or 29.1 percent, and the remaining 486 will complete it before July 27.
On the occasion, a commemorative ceremony and a conference to honour individuals and organisations who served the nation will be held.
The municipal People’s Committee asked authorities of districts, communes and townships to ensure social welfare is provided to war heroes and their families.
