The fourth campaign, organized by the city Communist Youth Union, will last to July 15 and is divided into two stages: from June 20 to 30 and July 5 to 15.
The youth volunteers come from the armed forces, militias and local youth unions.
After the opening ceremony, they dredged Du canal in District 8, Ba Thon canal in District 12, Tan Hoa-Lo Gom canal in District 11, and restored order and security on Nguyen Chi Thanh Street in District 5.
In the city’s districts, they disseminated information pertaining to laws and instructed residents how to prevent fires.
As part of the campaign, volunteers will implement many projects, including installing 1,000 meters of dike in the Tan Thanh Dong Commune of Cu Chi District, paving 300 meters of road at Pham Van Hai Commune in Binh Chanh District and the construction of eight friendship houses. 
In addition, they are scheduled to clean up commemoration areas of fallen heroes at Rung Sac Cemetery, in districts 7 and Nha Be, and will instruct workers and students how to fight crime at university dormitories.
