Numerous activities to pay tribute to war heroes, devotees

Hanoi, July 8 (VNA) – The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) is planning a host of activities to pay homage to war heroes and devotees in celebration of the 68th anniversary of War Invalids and Martyrs Day (July 27).

MoLISA demanded provincial-level People’s Committees conduct practical activities to celebrate the day and continue giving the full Party and State preference to revolutionary devotees.

Local MoLISA departments were also asked to deliver gifts and offer free medical exams and treatment to war devotees and women whose husbands or children sacrificed their lives during wartime.

On the evening of July 26, the MoLISA will coordinate with the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and the Ministry of Education and Training to lay wreaths, offer incense and light candles to commemorate war heroes at over 3,000 martyr cemeteries nationwide.

A ceremony paying tribute to the deceased will also be held at the Road 9 national martyr cemetery in central Quang Tri province by the Youth Union’s Central Committee.
