NDO – Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh held a meeting in Hanoi on April 11 with a delegation of national contributors from the southern province of Vinh Long.

At the meeting with 38 national contributors, including Heroic Vietnamese Mothers, the Vice President emphasised that Vinh Long is a province with patriotic and revolutionary tradition that has made considerable contributions to the cause of national defence and construction.

She asked the province to continue to raise the awareness and responsibility of sectors and agencies concerned in implementing policies towards national contributors.

Vice President Thinh expresses her wish that national contributors will promote their patriotic tradition to join hands with local authorities to develop the local economy while being examples for younger generations to follow.

According to Deputy Director of Vinh Long provincial Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, Phan Thi My Hanh, the province is carrying out policies for more than 63,000 local national contributors, including 174 Heroic Vietnamese Mothers.

The province also provides regular allowances to more than 11,000 beneficiaries each year. Vinh Long authorities will strive to mobilise more resources to enhance the living standards of national contributors to be equal to or higher than other residents in the locality, Hanh noted.
