Construction of a concrete bridge of 23 metres long, 2 metres wide and 8,5 metres high.
Urgent action in favor to inhabitants of a particularly defavorized zone of Tân Hội Trung, Cao Lãnh District, Đồng Tháp Province, after several personal accidents.
As the authorities themselves had an urgent situation on a more important operation, we decided to intervene upon the request of and in cooperation with the Red Cross and very active charity sisters in that area. The costs were 1 600 € and early 2010, we contacted all our friends and sympathisers to realize this emergency action. Thanks to the good relations with the local authorities and the vietnamese Red Cross this bridge was inaugurated before the strong yearly rains, in the presence of our local representative Syvlain Lorillou, his wife, and our friend Lý Thị Thu Thủy.
Friday 11 June 2010, 08.00 am the opening ceremony of the bridge:
A bridge is a link between two places to overcome an obstacle, in the spirit of this action, the bridge is the symbol of the union between two people, a place that abolishes all limitations, we served as an intermediary to cross this stage and go even beyond…
