City organizes mass wedding of 100 couples on National Day

100 couples this year include disadvantaged workers who are working in industrial parks, export processing zones and have achieved good results with their work and workers with disabilities..

The highlight of this year’s event is the couples wore Vietnamese traditional wedding dresses (Ao dai) and suit and paraded at many routes in the city including districts 1, 3, 10 (Nguyen Hue, Dong Khoi, Le Thanh Ton, Ly Thai To, Le Hong Phong…)

The mass wedding ceremony took place at Queen Plaza Ky Hoa in district 10. The organization board offered also “A dream house” worth VND 20million for a couple with extreme difficult living condition.

The couples paid tribute to President Ho Chi Minh at his statue in district 1.

The first mass wedding program was launched on July 7, 2007 for seven couples. To date, 772 couples with 1,444 youth workers have benefited from the program.
