Thanh Nien newspaper visits and gives gifts to Agent Orange victims in Ben Tre

On July 19, 2006, a mission of the Thanh Nien newspaper's Mekong Delta branch office in Can Tho City came to Ben Tre to visit, talk, take care of and give gifts to 86 students of the Ben Tre's School for Early Life-Entering Children, and 15 other children who are Agent Orange victims in Phu Duc Commune, Chau Thanh District.

The expneses for building the above bridges were sponsored from the W.P. Schimtz-Stifftung fund, a German charity aid fund founded by Mr W.P. Schimtz-Stifftung, 92.

And the above mentioned are among the many bridges that Mr W.P. Schimtz-Stifftung has done so far for Vietnam. He has said, he wants to leave something truly meaningful in Vietnam during his last years of lifetime. To date, W.P. Schimtz-Stifftung has help build totally 20 bridges for rural Vietnam (total expenses of VND500 million).

In 2004 and 2005, the Society of Roads and Bridges Sci-Tech invested to build 10 bridges in Thanh Phu District, another 10 bridges were built in Giong Trom and Ba Tri Districts. In the coming time, the Society is planning to ask the W.P. Schimtz-Stifftung fund to further support Ben Tre to carry out its plan to build 75 more bridges in rural areas. An answer has been promised by the organization.
