Speaking at the opening ceremony of the program, Vice-Chairwoman of the People’s Committee of District 3, Pham Thi Thuy Hang, mentioned that many enterprises in Ho Chi Minh City have always supported underprivileged residents, especially during the Tet holiday, despite the challenges faced in 2023.

Hang added that this humane act shows their affection and social responsibility.

Bui Thi Nhan, a 47-year-old resident, suggested expanding the program to other wards and districts to help more people enjoy a warm Tet.
