The Ho Chi Minh City Student Assistance Centre (SAC) will present 3,000 bus tickets to disadvantaged students to help them return home for Tet (Lunar New Year).
The buses will depart from HCM City to central provinces, especially those hit hard by the recent floods and storms, said SAC Deputy Director Le Xuan Dung on January 5.
On this occasion, the centre will provide 5,000 jobs for needy university students during the holiday, mostly cashier, packaging worker, supermarket staff, security guard, shipper and switchboard operator.
Besides, it will present gifts to underprivileged children in orphanages and the city’s outlying areas.
Last year, the centre presented up to 5,000 coach tickets to less privileged students and workers to help them reunite with their families in central, Central Highlands and southwestern regions.
