Ly Son is part of Hoang Sa (Paracel) Archipelago.
 
SGGP deputy editor-in-chief, journalist Ly Viet Trung gave the sum of money to the department’s director Le Hong Son.
 
The campaign aimed to popularize the importance of seas and islands to the country’s sovereignty and inviolate territory, he said.
 
It promoted the patriotism, national pride and solidarity of school staff, teachers and students in HCMC encouraging them to share difficulties with their counterparts in islands, he added.
 
According to Ms. Trung, the donated amount was taken from the newspaper’s sea and islands fund via its program for island children’s schooling.
 
The program targets urban students’ sympathy and compassion by calling them to donate VND1,000 each in order to help disadvantaged children in islands continue their school attendance.
 
The newspaper and the department have together implemented several programs with large social significance, which are appreciated by the community and readers, such as Good Essay-Good Writing, Vo Truong Toan Awards and enrollment advisory operations.
