Child care and protection focused

Khanh Hoa Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs has cooperated with local authorities to organize various activities to provide favorable conditions for child care and protection, ensuring their fundamental rights.


Various meaningful activities


Parents of Cao Thi Kim Ngan, a 5C class pupil, Khanh Vinh Town Primary School, Khanh Vinh District have to work far from home to earn a living for the whole family. The child has to travel for 3km on foot to school. Sometimes, she can get a ride from her friend. This Mid-autumn Festival, Khanh Hoa Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs cooperated with Khanh Hoa Youth Union and benefactors to donate a bike worth VND1.5 million to the child to save travel time to school. The journey to school becomes safer and faster.

4-year-old Nguyen Hoa Thao in Van Dinh Village, Ninh Dong Commune, Ninh Hoa Town is with acquired heart defects. However, her family is too poor to afford the surgery costs. The happiness has come to her family when Khanh Hoa Social Service Center in partnership with the Vinacapital Foundation, Heartbeat Vietnam program provided free surgery for the child. Her mom named Dang Thi Hoa Thanh, 44, said, “This the most beautiful dream in my life. My child has a healthy heart now.” 3-year-old Cao Thi Kim Cham in Cam Phuoc Dong, Cam Ranh City has also benefitted from the free heat surgery program. She has a healthy heart now thanks to the assistance.
