GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY TO BUILD CHARITY BRIDGE FOR POOR PEOPLE IN LONG AN PROVINCE – THERE IS A RANG DONG FULL OF LOVE LIKE THAT…

Long An is a province in the Southern West region in the Mekong Delta. Thanks to favorable natural conditions, Long An is a fertile land for agricultural production, so most of the people in Long An province live by wet-rice cultivation. However, in recent years, due to the water source was salinized that greatly affected the cultivation, so the people here were in the situation of “sustainable poverty”. Kien Tuong commune is one of them. Every year, Kieng Tuong is affected by floods on Vam Co River system, so the life of people is very difficult, especially when the main mean of transportation is still boat. An inter-commune bridge that is convenient for traveling is still a very expensive for the people here.
