(BGO)- The provincial
Women’s Union and Military Command in northern province of Bac Giang on July 19
jointly held a meeting at the Headquarter of the provincial Military Command to
show gratitude to the Vietnamese Heroic Mothers and outstanding policy
beneficiary families on the occasion of
the 75th anniversary of War Invalids and Martyrs Day (July 27, 1947-2022).
At the meeting to pay gratitude to the Vietnamese Heroic Mothers and outstanding policy beneficiary families, the stories about sacrifices of martyrs, war invalids and sick soldiers touched the heart of many people.
Permanent Deputy Secretary of the provincial Party Committee and Chairwoman of the provincial People’s Council Le Thi Thu Hong gives flowers to show gratitude to Vietnamese Heroic Mother Dinh Thi Sung in Que Son village, Thai Son commune, Hiep Hoa district.
The life of Nguyen Thi Quyen (born in 1944) in Tan Thanh commune, Lang Giang district, wife of martyr Nguyen Xuan Viet who sacrificed his life in Southern battlefield, is a motional story. She became a widow when she was just 20 years old. The little woman faced numerous difficulties because her parents-in-law were sick and her 2 daughters were too young. She tried to overcome challenges to care for her family, manage for her children’s study and participate in social work.
The situation of Nguyen Duc Bach (born in 2008) in Cuong Son commune, Luc Nam district, son of martyr Nguyen Van Hoan, an official of traffic police division, under the provincial Public Security Department makes many people moved to tears.
Hoan sacrificed in 2009 when he was pursuing one person illegally sucking sand on Thuong River. Bach was only 6 month at that time, thus he just knows about his father through his mother and grandparents but he is always proud of his dad.
Wounded soldier Luong Thi Giang (born in 1949) in Tam Hiep commune, Yen The district fought in the battlefield of Quang Tri and got injured in 1974.
In order to deserve sacrifices of her comrades, she has made great efforts to fulfill her family duties and the role as an official of the provincial Women’s Union. After she retired, she continues working as Chairwoman of the communal Former Youth Pioneer Association who actively encourages, guides and supports the members in handling policies and ensuring their rights and benefits.
Fostering the “returning one’s gratitude” movement
Speaking at the meeting, permanent Deputy Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Le Thi Thu Hong expressed her deep gratitude to the martyrs, war invalids, wounded soldiers and families of national contributors. Caring and implementing policies for national contributors is defined an important and regular political task.
Permanent Vice Chairwoman of the provincial People’s Council Lam Thi Huong Thanh and Chief Commander of the provincial Military Command Le Van Thang give certificate of merit to representatives of the outstanding policy beneficiary families.
Accordingly, national contributors are supported in economic development and provided health care and nursing. Many beautiful construction works of gratitude have been built. These results have been gained thanks to active engagement of the levels and sectors including the provincial Women’s Union and Military Command.
The provincial permanent Deputy Secretary Le Thi Thu Hong requested the party committees, governments, sectors and agencies at all levels to raise the high sense of responsibility, enhance education and propaganda to mobilize resources in the society to better caring for national contributors and policy beneficiary families. Besides, it is necessary to pay attention to providing vocational training, creating jobs for national contributors and their descendants and helping policy beneficiary families facing hard circumstances to develop production and business while bettering the care for Vietnamese Heroic Mothers.
Moreover, it is essential to boost and improve quality and efficiency of the “returning one’s gratitude” movement. It is also necessary to honour and praise good examples of war invalids, sick soldiers, martyrs’ families and national contributors who demonstrate self-improvement to overcome difficulties and gain good results at work and production and involve in patriotic emulation movements.
He expected the war invalids, sick soldiers, policy beneficiary families and national contributors to continue promoting the patriotic tradition, overcoming difficulties to study, work and build happy families deserving outstanding examples and making positive contributions to constructing the homeland and nation.
