Despite many hardships and a high rate of poverty, people in the villages actively took part in the campaign. Some financially-stricken families helped with bush clearing, road cleaning, and power line installation.
To date, lampposts have been set up on 7.1 km out of a total of 28.48 km of rural roads in Phuc Loi commune, helping people travel conveniently and safely and ensuring security and social order and transport safety.
In Lang Muong village of To Mau commune, in only half a day thanks to the locals’ joint efforts, 40 lights were installed along a 2-km road.
Dinh Thi Dau, a local resident, joyfully said that people have supported the campaign as it is for their own benefit. They are willing to pay for power bills, along with the repair and installation of the lighting systems.
To Mau has completed the installation of 130 lamps worth more than 68 million VND on 10 km of roads, bringing the rate of light-up roads in the commune to 70 percent.
From the success of the campaign in villages, the district’s Fatherland Front has worked with political-social organisations, members of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and people to raise funds for the purchase of transmission lines and bulbs, and contribute workdays to the installation.
Each month, local households voluntarily pay for electricity bills and replacement of blown bulbs. The campaign has also seen the participation of various organisations and firms. Lighting systems have been set up in over 60 km of roads in the district.
