Mr. Tran Than joined the Revolution in 1940.  After many years of arduous fighting on the battlefield, he remained devoted to the army in peacetime. When he retired, the results of war injuries, old age, and a stroke made it difficult for him to move. DTU donated him the wheelchair in proud recognition of his contribution to national independence. The wheelchair is a humanitarian project, researched, designed and manufactured by DTU lecturers and staff.

 “I have been paralyzed for many years now, my other wheelchair was far too old and it was difficult to go anywhere”, said a happy Mr. Tran Than. “But with this new wheelchair, I can easily go forwards, backwards or turn without help. I sincerely thank DTU for their understanding and this valuable gift. It is a very beautiful gesture of the university to improve the mobility of myself and others.”
An electric wheelchair is a very practical product to help the disabled overcome their difficulties and on January 26 DTU gave the first ten wheelchairs to Danang residents in particularly difficult circumstances.
