Senior people contribute to local movements

In the meeting held yesterday to review the movement “old person – good example” in 2016, the Association of Elderly People in Ho Chi Minh City commended 46 outstanding teams and 29 individuals.

These teams and persons were praised for their contribution to the movements of economic growth, building good culture in the residential blocks, environmental protection and criminal prevention & fighting,

Senior people have developed the movements which are practical for their localities; for instance the association of the elderly in Thai My Commune in Cu Chi District promoted the government’s new countryside plan; or the association in Binh Tan District partook in building clean alleys in Binh Hung Hoa A ward or the association of the elderly and young people helped each in doing business in Xuan Thoi Thuong Commune in Hoc Mon District.
