NDO – The People’s Committee of Truc Bach Ward in Ba Dinh District, Hanoi, presented hundreds of gift bags to local disadvantaged people on April 7 to help them overcome difficulties caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to Nguyen Dan Huy, Chairman of the Truc Bach Ward People’s Committee, the gifts were donated by organisations and benefactors in the locality as a joint effort to mitigate the impact of the epidemic.

From early morning, functional agencies packed necessities into bags before delivering them to the needy.

Each bag contains 0.5kg rice, eggs, sausages, face masks, and hand sanitisers.

Wearing face masks, people wait in line at a distance of two metres from each other to receive gifts.

The gifts are also handed out for disadvantaged people who refrained from going outside.

A total of 150 gifts are delivered every day for free to people in need.

The presentation of the gifts is a practical action to ensure that no one is left behind in the fight against COVID-19.
