Addressing the scholarship award ceremony, Nguyen Huu Cau, deputy director of Agribank’s East Long An Branch, said, “The year 2020 was difficult, seeing Vietnam’s economy negatively affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and natural disasters. We hope the scholarships will encourage the students to study harder and become good citizens.”
Nguyen Nhut Duy, a ninth grader of Tan Tru Town High School, thanked the Saigon Times Foundation and Agribank for granting the scholarships and pledged to try his best at school.
Besides the scholarships, the Saigon Times Group donated stationery comprising notebooks, books, chalkboards, chalks, ballpoint pens, pencils, rulers and pencil cases to the needy students of Huynh Van Danh Primary School in Tan Hoa Hamlet.
