In Quang Nam province, the Youth Unions of Da Nang and Quang Nam jointly organized the "Border March" program in A Nong commune, Tay Giang district, where they provided free medicine and medical exams to people in difficult circumstances, and gave gifts to village elders, A Nong Border Station and relatives of border officers and soldiers.

Youth Union members also implemented a program called "Light up the countryside". Nguyen Ba Duan, Deputy Secretary of the Da Nang Youth Union, said: "We are organizing several volunteer activities focused on social security. Youth movements contributing to the city's socio-economic development have spread. Our activities are focused on disadvantaged young people, poor children, poor families, and social beneficiaries in the city and neighboring mountain provinces."

In the border district of Buon Don, the Dak Lak provincial Youth Union has organized social security activities, presented scholarships to students in difficult circumstances, given bicycles to disadvantaged students with outstanding academic results, provided capital to young startups, and built charity houses. On this occasion, the Dak Lak provincial Youth Union gave 20 maps to Yok Don National Park and the Yok Don, Bo Heng, and Serepok border stations.

In Soc Trang province, the 2024 "Border March" program was held at Lai Hoa Border Guard Station, Vinh Chau town, where there are many disadvantaged ethnic minorities. The provincial Youth Union presented a charity house and 2,000 notebooks to poor students and gave 20 gifts to families of fishermen and border guards.
