Texting campaign raises fund for naval soldiers launched

The “Millions of Hearts for the Country” program raising funds for armed forces who are protecting national sovereignty over sea and islands was kicked off in Hanoi on January 6.

The event is organized by the Lao Dong (Labor) newspaper's Golden Heart Fund, the Viet Nam Television Cable Company and the Power Communications JSC.

All financial support will be sent to families of naval soldiers, fishermen and armed forces, aiming to encourage their duties.

Individuals and organizations can donate the campaign by texting "TCT" to 1407. Each SMS costs VND14, 000 (US$0.7); or making an online cash donation at tamlongvang.laodong.com.vn  and at the Golden Heart Fund, 51 Hang Bo Street, Ha Noi.
