Dan Tri/DTiNews Newspaper has started the construction of the classrooms in the mountainous province of Dien Bien on May 17.

Hua Muc 1 school site is one of Pu Xi Primary School’s ten sites. About a month ago, a thunderstorm and heavy rain caused landslides and destroyed the school. The teachers and pupils had to use local houses to hold classes.

Many readers have donated to rebuild the school after knowing about the situation. Dan Tri Newspaper also contributed and will help build five classrooms, three staffrooms, one kitchen and a toilet. The building and grounds will cost around USD30,800.
