Female migrant workers in Hanoi receive gifts

As many as 480 female migrant workers living in difficult circumstances received gifts worth 500,000 VND each during a programme held in Hanoi on September 18.

They now temporarily reside in 11 wards in the districts of Hoan Kiem, Ba Dinh and Hoang Mai and Hai Ba Trung.

The activity was co-organised by the Hanoi Women’s Union, the Light Community Health Development Institute and Oxfam in Vietnam.

From April 27 to September 15, the Hanoi Women’s Union handed over 7,300 gifts valued at more than 2.2 billion VND to female vulnerable workers.

The same day, the union also held a webinar in response to the 2021 campaign “Make the world cleaner”.

Participants at the event shared creative models regarding waste treatment and recycling in households, as well as ways to raise public awareness of environmental protection./.
