VND 2 billion donated to support indigenous in Dien Bien Province

The Vietnam Buddhist Sangha visited and donated 5,000 gifts to people from Nam Po District, Dien Bien Province on April 4-7.

The group also visited and donated presents to people in Na Hy Commune, where the videos of children commuting across rivers in plastic bags with adults originated. The videos went viral on the Internet in March 2013.

The event was sponsored by Buddhists of Vinh Nghiem Pagoda in HCMC, Nam Viet Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Navibank), and Sacomreal Valuation Joint Stock Company.
