At the exchange event, Nguyen Phan Nhat Tuyet, Dien Khanh District couldn’t hold back her tears when talking about her dad. “My dad died when I was at grade 7, leaving my mom and I behind. Since then, all the family burden has been on my mom. One year after his death, my mom fell ill seriously with blurred vision. Every day, when finishing my study, I spend time helping my mom with her small shop and chores. I love her very much and will try my best to learn well to be able to get a good job  later to take better care of my mom.” The child has just passed the entrance exam to Hoang Hoa Tham High School.
