The Vietnam Women’s Union on March 21 presented “For Vietnamese Women’s Advancement” insignias to the director of the non-governmental organisation Latter Day Saint Charities (LDSC), David Berry, and his wife.

The two Americans were honoured for their help given to the disabled and the poor in Vietnam, particularly women and children.

LDSC has provided around 2,500 wheelchairs for disabled people, mainly women and children, in northern Ha Tay, Thai Binh and Phu Tho provinces, and Hanoi.

The charitable organisation granted US $15,000  to Hanoi’s orthopedics centre and another US $40,000  to support victims of typhoons Damrey and Xangsane in central Thua Thien-Hue province and Da Nang city.

Also donated was US $20,000 for the construction of clean water supply systems for thousands of poor people in Truong Son commune, Luong Son district, northern mountainous Hoa Binh province. (VNA)
