Dolls are new and rare; some of them can cry or laugh; some are wearing rings. Especially some primary pupils enclosed their letters to the unknown friends, wishing their friends a happy International Children’s Day (June 1, 2006).

The granting ceremony took place at Education and Training office in District 11 on May 8. The head of the office Le Van Cuoc acclaimed the program held by SGGP newspaper. He said it has carried human feelings and caring for disadvantaged children.
