PANO – Leaders of the General Department II, under the Defence Ministry, on September 11th held an inauguration ceremony to present a home of gratitude to Nguyen Xuan Hien, aged 86, a pre-revolution cadre, in Cam Lo district, Quang Tri.
The house costing VND 50 million was funded by Ms. Nguyen Kim Son, a veteran and mother of a war martyr, and built by soldiers of department 11 under the general department in collaboration with local organizations.
This is the fourth house of gratitude the department has so far granted to policy beneficiaries across the nation in 2010.
At the ceremony, officers and soldiers also gave VND 3 million and other household goods to the policy beneficiary's family.
Reportedly, the General Department II has mobilized over VND 6.5 billion to build 152 homes of gratitude for policy beneficiaries nationwide over the 10 past years.
