Over the past 14 years, the program has mobilized more than 380,000 USD from organizations and individuals. Nguyen Dang Quang, Chairman of the provincial Fatherland Front, said: “Many poor people are unable to access basic social services, especially housing. The program has called on the whole community to secure a happy Tet for disadvantaged families”.

In HCM city, the municipal Farmers’ Association hosted a program to raise funds for poor farmers. Association Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Bach Mai said: “We try to help farmers access social welfare programs and more production equipment to escape poverty. I think this program will encourage them in production and daily life”.
