According to the NFVC, the capital was used for health checks; surgeries correcting congenital heart, mouth and eye abnormalities; building schools and boarding houses; and supporting scholarships, nutrition and bridges to schools for children in areas hit by natural disasters, floods and those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking at the press briefing, MOLISA Deputy Minister Nguyen Thi Ha said that the ministry would organize the 14th “Spring for Children” program, in order to bring significant presents to poor and disadvantaged children.
