At a ceremony held on September 24 by the two organizations and the province’s Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, the wheelchairs worth more than 282 million VND (nearly 12,200 USD) were delivered directly to beneficiaries.

Walker King, a representative from the Latter Day Saint Charities, said his organization is implementing several projects to support the disabled in Vietnam.

He said the wheelchairs were bought with donations from philanthropists worldwide, who want to help less fortunate people.

There are around 8,300 disabled people receiving social assistance in Binh Phuoc, of whom nearly 2,370 are in specially disadvantaged circumstances.
