Today we visited again the Peace Village in Tam Ky City

This Village houses are new in the wide grounds.

Just after the National Day one T-storm hit the central highland.

by VN Express:

We’re so sorry to hear that 600 houses flooded in this T-storm.

Our thought are with everyone who have been affected by it.

Yesterday, under the t-storm we started to visit weavers in Tay Giang.

Passed gifts from the Danang J-V Chamber of Commerce to children,

finished our peaceful business then drunk a bit of their local brewed wine together.

Then in the afternoon, we visited Mr. Y Kong, who has been preserving

the Co-Tu culture enthusiastically for a long time.

He played CoTu musical instruments of CoTu & showed us his collections

in his home museum.

We talked about U Cafe’s projects & his hope to preserve the culture further more.

Both of us had fruitful time for associating in common cause.

   

Please wait for our cooperative work expectantly.
