This year, the program has mobilized some 3,000 gifts, including traditional sticky rice cakes (chung cakes) and specialties nationwide such as Hanoi spring rolls, Thai Nguyen tea, Ben Tre coconut milk candies, etc worth VND600 million. 3 gifts have been given to 3 mission ships at the departure ceremony. The gifts are from all parts of the homeland to the islands as an expression of affectation and appreciation of people on the mainland for those on the far-off islands. The activity of the club is highly honored, contributing to celebrating a warm New Year holiday for officials, soldiers and residents in the island district, according to Bui Dinh Duong, Chairman of Truong Sa District People’s Committee.
