On the morning of April 22, the Commission for People Mobilization at the provincial Party Committee coordinated with Dong Nai Labor Federation, Dong Nai Department of Science and Technology and Trang Bom district to hold an opening ceremony in Trang Bom district to put the “Rice ATM” into operation with the aim of helping those living under difficult circumstances due to Covid-19.
 

The opening ceremony of the “Rice ATM” program was attended by Head of the Commission for People Mobilization at the provincial Party Committee Huynh Van Hong; Director of Dong Nai Department of Science and Technology Nguyen Thi Hoang; and Chairwoman of the provincial Labor Federation Nguyen Thi Nhu Y.

Addressing the ceremony, Head of the Commission for People Mobilization at the provincial Party Committee Huynh Van Hong thanked sponsors and donors for taking practical actions to work with local authorities to help people with difficult living conditions and disadvantages to overcome the difficulties caused by Covid-19. Trang Bom district is a key area with a lot of workers and laborers, which has been highly affected by the disease. Therefore, Head of the Commission for People Mobilization at the provincial Party Committee hoped that people would continue to promote the “Extend Helping Hands” tradition to overcome the epidemic and make Trang Bom district and Dong Nai wealthier and more beautiful and civilized.

 

In order to receive rice, each resident who is on the list of the poor, lonely, disabled and disadvantaged people in Trang Bom district is granted with a rice-receiving card by local authorities and is allowed to take 5 kg of rice from the automatic rice-dispensing machine one time. Users just need to press their feet on the button and a fixed amount of rice will automatically go out.

 

To comply with the regulations on how to prevent Covid-19, those who come to get rice have to follow such steps as queuing in order, going through the automatic body disinfection cabin, walking into a required place, having body temperature measured, and washing hands with sanitizer from the automatic sanitizer-dispensing machine; sitting at a required place at least 2 meters away from others; putting a bag into the required place to get rice and going home. All the devices like body disinfection cabin, automatic body temperature measuring machine, automatic rice ATM and so on have been studied and manufactured by the research group of Dong Nai Department of Science and Technology to help with the program.

According to organizers, more than 250 arrivals of people came to get rice in the morning. For some communes in far-flung and hard-to-access areas in the district, people have had many difficulties travelling and organizers will transfer rice to each poor and disadvantaged household through organizers.

 

Ms. Pham Thi Kim Chung, Deputy Head of the Commission for People Mobilization at the provincial Party Committee said, up to now the “Rice ATM” program has been able to call for the donation of more than 50 tons of rice from sponsors and donors. As planned, the “Rice ATM” program will transfer 20 tons of rice to the disadvantaged people in Trang Bom district. In addition, Trang Bom district has mobilized more than 10 tons of rice to help local residents.

 

In the forthcoming time, the provincial People’s Committee will continue to coordinate with the Labor Federation and concerned units to call for sponsors to install more rice ATMs in other localities to timely help people with difficulties due to Covid-19.
