(LĐXH)- National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan attended a ceremony hosted by the Ministry of Labour Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) in Hanoi on November 28 to honour outstanding organisation and individuals who made major contributions to the community.
On behalf of the Party and State, NA Chairwoman Ngan presented the “Labour Hero in Renewal Period” title to the National Fund for Vietnamese Children (NFVC) and two individuals in recognition of their outstanding achievements in labour and creativity in 2009- 2019 period, contributing to the cause of socialism building and national safeguarding.
Over the past 28 years, the NFVC and its chapters mobilised nearly 7.2 trillion VND, providing support for more than 33 million children in especially difficult circumstances across the country.
At the event, Vice State President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh praised and thanked organisations and individuals for their dedication to voluntary work and social welfare activities nationwide.
Currently, there are many people that are in need of assistance in the country, including 6.4 million people living with disabilities, nearly 2 million children in difficult circumstances and other vulnerable groups, she said.
Thinh called for more attention and assistance from the community to the work, towards bringing poor and disadvantaged people a better life.
The Vice President suggested completing laws and policies related to social welfare.
At the event, the Minister of MoLISA Dao Ngoc Dung affirmed that over the past time, social security has always been paid special attention by the Party and the State.
Despite many difficulties, the rate of ensuring the budget for the implementation of social policies has gradually increased each year. In 2019, the total state budget expenditure on social security reached 35 trillion VND.
“This commendation ceremony is the convergence of hundreds of "fairy tales" in real life. Taking care of the vulnerable people who still face many difficulties in life is both moral and duty, responsibility and affection of Vietnamese people. The models in everyday life need to be multiplied more and more towards a good society” – the Minister added./.
