Masan Consumers Joint Stock Company and the Vietnam Cuisine Culture Association have organised a charity programme, Tet tre em (Children's Lunar New Year).

It was meant to enable children and teachers at shelters for disadvantaged children in HCM City to experience Tet and have fun at an event called Vietnamese Tet Festival 2020 held at Le Van Tam Park in District 1.

A Masan Consumer spokesperson said through the activities, the organisers wanted to bring joy to the children, enable them to enjoy the New Year atmosphere, play folk games, and experience Tet culture and foods.

More than 120 children from the Hoa Mau Don and Hoa Sen orphanages, Thu Duc Teenager Village, and HCM City Vocational Training and Employment Support Centre took part.

In addition to participating in the special activities designed for them, they also had the opportunity to acquire useful knowledge about Tet through a quiz and receive attractive gifts.

The celebrations ended with the children and teachers receiving gifts and lucky money from the organisers.
