The money donated by individuals and enterprises will help Đồng Tháp build 11,000 new houses to replace the existing makeshift ones, and support farmers production, students, and children coming from extremely poor households or suffering serious diseases.

Before the program, the provincial People’s Committee signed eight memoranda of understanding, totaling VND 3.5 trillion, on investment cooperation with economic groups and companies.
