The Vice President was so moved at the poverty stricken family of Nguyen Huu Tien when she arrived at his house in Dong Phi Village in Phuong Tu Commune in Ung Hoa District in Hanoi on August 22.
Tien’s mother is a rice farmer and his father is a bicycle mechanic. Despite his impoverished condition, Tien and his twin both studied hard and did very well in the exam, with Tien coming first, while his twin also passed the entrance examination for the Polytechnic University in Hanoi.
The Vice President gave presents to Tien’s parents and also asked the local authority to make it possible for Tien’s parents to enjoy special welfare policies.
