Dantri readers have helped build a house for a poor woman who has 10 children in Thai Nguyen Province.


Local authorities and youth union help build new house for Ha Thi Lay

Local authorities and the youth union in Lang Nong Village, Yen Trach Commune, started the construction of a charity house for Ha Thi Lay. The new house will be 50 square metres and cost VND110m (USD4,700). Dantri readers have donated VND80,100,099 via Dantri Charity Fund and VND10m directly to Ly. An anonymous organisation donated VND30m via the Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs in Phu Luong District.

Ly said she was just too happy and couldn't sleep. "My dream is becoming true," she said. "Now we won't have to sleep in worry whenever it rains or if there's a storm."

Party Secretary of Yen Trach Commune Duong Van Tuan said members of the youth union will come to help. Tuan also thanked the readers.

Lay has 10 children but four of her children died of unknown causes. Her husband died in April of lung cancer after nine years of struggling. Lay is living with her 34-year-old son, Dam Van Dan, 32-year-old Dam Van Khe and 9-year-old grandson Dam Van Nam.

Khe is the youngest of the siblings and his mind is stunted. Recently, he also was diagnosed with goitre, liver and kidney diseases. They live together in a decrepit house that looks like it can collapse at any time.
