The information was revealed at the program called “Bring Tet home", which was launched at the HCMC Youth’s Cultural House on November 22 by the Central Youth Union and Suntory Pepsico Vietnam Beverage Company.

Accordingly, the program will present 556 return air tickets, including 360 tickets on domestic flights and 196 others on international routes, 3,600 round-trip bus tickets and Tet gifts to over 4,000 poor workers and students, especially teachers of kindergartens and primary schools, and healthcare workers who have not planned to return their hometown for many consecutive years.

Secretary of Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (CYU) Central Committee Ngo Van Cuong said that the program aims to take care of disadvantaged workers and students, especially Vietnamese people who are working and studying in Japan, to have a chance to return home for family reunion on Tet holidays.

Additionally, the organization board has continued to coordinate with the mobile payment application, ZaloPay to call on individuals, collectives and businesses to support the “Bring Tet home” fund to offer additional bus tickets for needy workers and students.
