Dantri/DTiNews readers have sent over VND158m (USD6,800) to support a brother and sister who lost their parents in Gia Lai Province.


Dao Thanh Hung and Tran Nguyen Dan Linh receive the donation

Dao Thanh Hung, born in 1998, and Tran Nguyen Dan Linh, born in 2014, are half brother and sister who share the same mother. After their mother died of cancer two months ago, they live together in a small house in Village 5, Tra Da Commune.

One year ago, Hung had an accident so his mother had to put up their house as collateral for a bank loan. Last December, his mother was too tired to work and later diagnosed with lung cancer. She died over a month later.

Tran Van Trung, Hung's uncle, said, "I also have six children to take care of so I can't help them much. The little girl stays with us during the week and returns home to live with her brother on the weekends."

On April 6, representatives from Dantri and Tra Da Commune People's Committee visited and transferred VND158,678,800 in donations to the brother and sister.

"We have received so much kindness. I'll work and take a vocational course at the same time to find a better job and to save money for Linh to go to school," Hung said.

Bui Van Phuc, chairman of Tra Da People's Committee, also expressed gratitude to the donors.

"We'll help look after the brother and sister and provide consultancy so that they can have a better future," he said.
