"Organ donations can give life to others. Donating is a good deed we can do after death," says Pham Hung, a 12th grader at Nguyen Du High School in Ba Ria Vung Tau Province. Students at Nguyen Du High School attend a roundtable meeting on the importance of organ donations. Hung and his close friend Dinh Huu Thien Phuc, an 11th grader at the school, have been working for months on a research project that raises students' awareness about the value of organ donations. Their project has received a positive response from teachers, students and officials. “We wanted to do something to spread the good will and compassion shown by organ donors, who help to save other people,” Hung says.

The accuser-turned-accused Pham Thi Thanh Ngoc, 40, is also the one who had lodged complaints to local police against a Vietnamese tabloid for what she called ostensible made-up stories last year that she raped many taxi drivers, one of whom was said to be forced to have sex with her over 30 times in two days.

A man and his children in Hanoi have donated VND1.8bn (USD77,800) to clean up a polluted lake in their village and built a small public park. The lake of Hanh Dan Village For the past two years, the locals in Hanh Dan Village, Tan Lap Commune, have often go to a 3,000-square-metre park to play. This park is built around a village lake constructed by 74-year-old Nguyen Tu Hung. Hung said he had wanted to build the park since 2000 but he didn't have the money then.
