5,000 people walk in Hanoi on Good Deeds Day
Mar 15 2018

Around 5,000 people joined a voluntary walk around Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi on March 11 to mark Good Deeds Day. The event was jointly held by the Vietnam Youth Federation's Central Committee, Vietnam Volunteers Centre and FPT Corporation. It was also aimed to mark FPT Community Day on every March 13.

The walk participants include FPT staff the most along with local residents and many singers and musicians. Each participant contributed VND100,000 (USD4.54) to raise funds for social security projects, including the construction of playgrounds for children.

Nguyen Thi Thu Van, vice chairwoman of the Vietnam Youth Federation's Central Committee, said that voluntary campaigns would be the focus of the federation in the next five year, aiming to call for young people to contribute more to community projects.

Bui Quang Ngoc, general director of FPT, said that since 2010, the corporation has selected March 13 as FPT Community Day so that their staff can contribute to helping disadvantaged people in the country.

On the sidelines of the walk, the Vietnam Voluntary Centre and FPT Corporation signed an agreement for social security programmes in 2018, including repairing houses for the poor and supporting schools in remote areas.

People who took part in the walk offered gifts for passers-by. Two players from the Vietnam U23 squad, Bui Tien Dung and Nguyen Trong Dai, also joined the event and presented 30 autographed footballs for children. - Dtinews.vn
