(VOV) - Samaritan’s Purse International Relief (SPIR) on December 6 presented 3,000 gifts worth VND500,000 each to poor children and pupils in Ham Thuan district, Binh Thuan province.

Gifts consisting of learning aid, toys and clothes have also been donated by children in the UK, US and Australia to disadvantaged friends in Vietnam.

Man Tan Dung, Chairman of the Binh Thuan provincial association in support of disabled and orphans, said most pupils at Tan Thuan village are children of poor fishermen and workers so the gifts are very meaningful for them

It has also sponsored vocational training for mountainous children, urgent relief for natural disaster victims and scholarships for needy pupils.
