On May 17, 2018, after the flight from the Philippines, JCI President Marc Brian Lim along with the National Board of Director JCI Vietnam and JCI East Saigon Chapter moved to Ben Tre Province to hand over generator to four households. Located at the end of Ben Tre province, by a long river, Con Lat island, Kien island is separated quite a lot of public facilities, typically no electricity network coverage, human life are struggling with the lack of electricity, isolated from the mainland - where the national grid eletricity has not been pulled. The delegation had to travel more than two hours to reach the delivery area and continue to travel by boat to cross the river and then walk more than 5km to reach the 4 households that set the generator.
Although it is a long way to go in hot weather, it can be said that when the light was turned on in dark and cramped little houses, all the troubles and fatigue was gone. JCI President Marc Brian Lim with us shouted: The Light, The Light, The Ligh - bring light to open a life, a brighter future for the poor.
