At the event, the recipients were also instructed how to assemble and use the vehicle.
Chairman of the association Mai Xuan Thu said the move is expected to help the disabled ease their difficulties and quickly integrate into the community.
He wished that the disabled and vulnerable groups will receive further support from philanthropists, especially in creating sustainable livelihoods, presenting scholarships and offering heart surgeries to the handicapped and their children living in need.
