The youths, from 29 countries worldwide, were touched by stories about the President Ho Chi Minh – the beloved leader of the Vietnamese nation. 

Nguyen Khanh Ly Ly from Russia said this is the first time she has visited Uncle Ho’s homeland, and she felt proud of the President and to be a Vietnamese. 

“When I return to Russia, I will tell these stories to Vietnamese kids to help them understand more about President Ho Chi Minh,” she said, adding she is majoring in pedagogy with the hope to come back to Vietnam to teach Russian or English to Vietnamese.

Nguyen Gia Linh from Bulgaria said President Ho Chi Minh’s great example has encouraged her and her friends to study harder in order to contribute to the cause of national construction.

The same day, the delegation planted trees at the Kim Lien relic site in Nam Dan district, Nghe An province.

Apart from Nghe An province, they will tour other localities like Hanoi, Thai Nguyen, Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Quang Tri, Quang Nam, Da Nang, Quang Ngai and Ninh Thuan, with various activities.

They will present gifts to relatives of martyrs in Ha Tinh, orphans in Quang Ngai and other needy children in Ninh Thuan, and engaged in exchanges with their Vietnamese peers in several provinces.

Started in 2004, the Vietnam Summer Camp has so far attracted the participation of nearly 2,000 Vietnamese youth and students from over 30 countries and territories. Many of the participants have become very successful in their career and made active contributions to the national construction.

This year, the camp is participated by 155 delegates from 28 countries, representing the youths with outstanding achievements in study, sports and arts who make considerable contributions to the building of the overseas Vietnamese community.

The camp includes various activities in 10 localities throughout Vietnam, including paying respect to late President Ho Chi Minh at his mausoleum in Hanoi, visiting his birth place in Nghe An province, visiting the Truong Son cemetery of fallen soldiers in Quang Tri province, and others.

Besides, participants will hand over aid relief to the families of 10 fallen soldiers and orphans as well as poor children./.
