The program is conducted every year in Christmas holiday for the Son Tra Little Green Guards in Da Nang City.
Christmas holiday with Santa Clause and interesting gifts and Christmas tree are always the best time for the kids. This interesting holiday also came when the kids finished their studying time preparing for the longest holiday in the year – Tet holiday. With the image of the Red-shanked douc in Son Tra, to celebrate Christmas with the theme “Peace on earth and Goodwill toward all creatures”, GreenViet want to take this opportunity to fulfill the love of the little green Guards for Son Tra wildlife and the Son Tra doucs – the queen of primates.
