President asserts duty to care for revolutionary contributors

Quang Nam, April 30 (VNA) – President Tran Dai Quang reaffirmed the duty to care for contributors to the national revolution at his visit to a nursing home in the central province of Quang Nam on the occasion of the 41 st anniversary of Southern Liberation and National Reunification Day on April 30.

Founded in 1976, the provincial centre is now nursing 35 Vietnamese heroic mothers, war invalids and those who have rendered services to the nation. It also provides services for nearly 4,000 revolutionary contributors in Quang Tri and 500 others from central and Central Highlands provinces every year.

It has recently undergone upgrades at a cost of nearly 28 billion VND (1.26 million USD).

During the visit, the leader reiterated that the Party and State always keep in mind the contributors’ participation in and sacrifices to the struggle for national liberation and independence.

He was delighted that these heroic mothers and revolutionary contributors have been well cared for by the centre’s staff and Quang Nam province in particular.

Greater endeavours should be made in the caring of revolutionary contributors, he said, calling for people nationwide to take practical deeds towards these people.
The same day, President Tran Dai Quang paid homage to late President Ho Chi Minh and martyrs at the Nuoc Oa national historical and cultural relic site in Bac Tra My district, and visited the commemorative house of the late acting President Huynh Thuc Khang.

The Nuoc Oa historical and cultural relic site once served as a revolutionary base of the High Command of Military Zone V during the Vietnam war.

From 1972-1973, the base was chosen as the venue of many important meetings and training courses for leaders and officials of regional provinces following the signing of the Paris Agreement, where they discussed how to lead people nationwide in the struggle for southern liberation and national reunification.

The site won the national historical-cultural status in August 1992.
