The charity organization Loreto Vietnam-Australia Program (LVAP)  opened a Multifunctional Education Center (MEC) at Niem Vui Special School in Tuy Hoa Town, Phu Yen Province on Monday.

The school's 150 students, mainly hearing-impaired kids, will now have access to three camera-installed demonstration rooms for one-on-one interactions with hearing-impaired students, and a control room with a large television for other teachers and parents to view those exchanges.

Other gifts include three refurbished resource rooms for children in the Early Intervention grades, two new hygienic toilet blocks, new playground equipment, and an air-conditioner for the Play-Based Activities Room.

The gifts cost a total of US$24,532.

The project was funded by UPS, the world's largest package delivery company and a leading global provider of specialized transportation.
