City Calls on Laborers to Give a Day’s Pay to the Poor

A plea from the HCMC People’s Committee calls for each manual and office laborer in Ho Chi Minh City to donate one day’s pay to provide financial aid to the poor, in a movement called “Study and work according to Uncle Ho’s ethical example”.

Each laborer is encouraged to donate one day's pay to provide financial aid to the poor

The movement which is initiated among state-owned organizations will continue for two months, from 5th April to 5th June 2008.

Each organization participating in the movement is committed to further promoting their fight against waste in production and economy management.

An art exhibition also began yesterday in Ha Noi coordinated by the Viet Nam Fine Arts Association to showcase paintings, literature works and articles with the main theme “Study and work according to Uncle Ho’s ethical example”. It is also an event held to commemorate 60th anniversary of the day President Ho Chi Minh urged the whole nation to convey their patriotism in working harder for the country.

Each piece of art has the main focus of reflecting President Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts and ethical example which promote patriotism, a working spirit among people to achieve an aim of prosperity, civilization, peace and equality for the country.

The most outstanding works of art will be showcased at an exhibition held on Uncle Ho’s birthday on 19 May in Ha Noi.
