Localities nationwide give gifts and scholarships to children and offer free medical exams for poor children, ethnic children, and orphans. The administration and organizations support child protection, accident and injury prevention and control, and children's right to participate, and repair schools, boarding houses, and entertainment places for children.

Dang Hoa Nam, Director of the Children's Department, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids, and Social Affairs, said, “This year's Action Month for Children emphasizes the responsibility of local authorities to take care of children and prevent child abuse, especially sexual abuse, domestic violence, school violence, child injuries, and deaths due to drowning.”

The Hanoi People's Committee issued a plan to ensure that 100% of children with special circumstances are cared for and given gifts on International Children's Day. Thousands of children affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and children of workers with difficult circumstances in Ho Chi Minh City will receive free medical exams this summer. The authorities of mountainous, remote, and ethnic localities have built safe playgrounds for children.

Tong Thi Tien, Secretary of the Youth Union of Phong Lang commune, Thuan Chau district, Son La province, said, “The communal Youth Union has assigned grassroots units to organize summer activities for children at the cultural houses. We want to help them develop their creativity, stay away from social evils, and avoid accidents.”
