CAND Newspaper and donors build home for poor family in Thanh Hoa
Readers of Public Security (CAND) Newspaper and donors has built a new house for Le Phu Tai’s family, in Village 10, Dong Hoa commune, Dong Son district, Thanh Hoa.
Tai has suffered from a mental illness and been treated at Thanh Hoa Psychiatric Hospital for years. Thus his family has had lots of financial difficulties
His wife is the breadwinner of his family, supporting him and 4 children, so they are so poor.
