Programme to raise funds for charity

HA NOI — The eighth Mot Trai Tim – Mot The Gioi (One Heart – One World) charity arts programme will take place at the Ha Noi Cultural Friendship Palace on Saturday.

The programme is being organised by the Association for the Support of Vietnamese Handicapped and Orphans (ASVHO) and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs in co-operation with Viet Nam Television to celebrate the National Day for the Disabled People (April 18).

According to ASVHO Chairman Nguyen Dinh Lieu, the programme aims to bring the public closer to disabled people and orphans who live in the countryside and remote areas.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to listen to stories about blind people, who have overcome their difficulties and integrated with society.

The ASVHO raised VND117 billion (US$5.6 million) last year, helping to pay for 235,000 courses of medical treatment.

The programme will be broadcast live on VTV1 at 8pm.
