This was part of a youth-funded project launched by Miss World Vietnam 2019 Luong Thuy Linh called “Đắp đường, xây ước mơ” (Building roads, building dreams). Lung Liu is home to 33 poor Mong ethnic minority households with nearly 200 people.
The schoolhouse in the village has over 40 students.
There is only one narrow path leading to Lung Liu, known as one of the poorest villages of Hoa An district. The village is often islanded by heavy rains.
To upgrade the path leading to the village, young police officers have to carry heavy materials, including cement, sand and gravel, on their back from the foot of the mount, said Captain Le Hoai Nam, Secretary of the Youth Union Chapter of the Cao Bang Provincial Police Department.
Some 250 young police officers and local youths are trying their best to build the road.
Miss World Vietnam 2019 Luong Thuy Linh estimated that some 700 tons of materials will be carried by the participating youths to build the road. The project is expected to be completed this November. The upgraded road will facilitate transportation of people within Lung Liu and to its neighborhoods, contributing to promoting local economic development.
