The two-storey Son Thuy kindergarten has five classrooms and full equipment serving teaching, studying and entertainment activities of teachers and students.

Meanwhile, the Hoa Thuy medical station has two stories with a total area of 593 sq.m.

Along with these works, through its Indo-Pacific Command, the US is funding the construction of Thanh Thuy Primary School, also in Le Thuy district.

Addressing the event, US Ambassador to Vietnam Marc Evans Knapper said that the works are a symbol of the cooperation between the two countries.

According to the Ambassador, the projects also manifest the US's commitment to Vietnam’s prosperity, strength and independence. He added that the commitment has been implemented since 2009 through the US Department of Defence, the Indo-Pacific Command and the US Embassy in Hanoi, with many schools, medical stations, bridges, and natural disaster relief centres built. “The US has been, is and will always stand by Vietnam, while continuing to make efforts to deepen the cooperative relationship between the two countries,” he went on to say.

For his part, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Quang Binh Ho An Phong thanked the US side for the practical and meaningful support.

Emphasizing that the projects will meet the demand for education and health care services of local residents, he said that they will also contribute to creating a new look for the countryside area frequently affected by natural disasters of Le Thuy district.

He also expressed his hope that in the time to come, the locality will continue to receive more assistance from the US./.
