Dantri/DTiNews readers have donated VND190 million (USD8,189) to a poor student in the central province of Quang Binh who is taking care of his ailing mother.

VND130 million was donated through the newspaper’s Compassionate Hearts Programme, VND20 million through the Vietnam Study Promotion Fund with the remainder sent directly to Le Quoc Long’s family in Son Thuy Commune, Le Thuy District.

After an article about the family’s situation was published on Dantri, many people made donations.

Long, a Grade-4 student, lives with his 42-year-old mother Le Thi Duyen who has faced Basedow Disease. Due to financial difficulties, Duyen has stayed at home for self-treatment. The inappropriate treatment has caused her complications such as heart problems and arthritis.

Every day, after returning from school, Long collects scrap metal to earn money.

Duyen said that she was really happy to receive the donation. She expressed her great thanks to the newspaper and the public.

Huu Han, vice chairman of Le Thuy Commune attended the donation ceremony and Han thanked Dantri/DTiNews for helping raise donations for the family.
