The organization of “Nghia tinh Truong Son” (Sentimental Attachment for Truong Son Road), Sai Gon Giai Phong newspaper, and the border guards in the central province of Nghe An broke ground for a clinic on November 24.

The VND1 billion (US$49000) clinic sponsored by the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group through the Nghia tinh Truong Son program was built in the mountainous district Con Cuong in Nghe An for healthcare service for over 60 ethnic minority people Dan Lai who live separately in the National park Pu Mat.

Mr. Tran The Tuyen, Editor - in - chief of Sai Gon Giai Phong, said the fund for the program was raised to repay veterans and voluntary youths including ethnic minority Dan Lai who fought and worked on the Truong Son Road, also known as the Ho Chi Minh trail, during the war, but now live in poverty on the eastern and western sides of the Truong Son mountain range.

On the behalf of border guard headquarter, colonel Nguyen Van Tuy promised to construct a high quality clinic and it will be soon operated to provide healthcare to inhabitants in the mountainous district.
