Director of the municipal Department of Culture and Sports Tran The Thuan highly appreciated the preservation activities of these historical sites where rare and valuable images and items of the revolutionary struggle of Sai Gon – Gia Dinh people during the anti-American resistance war are kept. However, the relic sites have been severely damaged by time.
The HCMC Department of Culture and Sports calls on organizations and individuals to join hands to contribute to a fund for the promotion and preservation of the city’s cultural heritages.
