My Lai Peace Foundation in coordination with HCMC Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera (HBSO) will organize the “Desire for Peace” concert at the HCMC Opera Theater on April 30, 2018, with an aim to raise funds for My Lai Peace Park project in Quang Ngai Province.

Starting from 7:30 p.m., the concert will feature some songs praising the love for the country such as Viet Nam Que Huong Toi (Vietnam, my country) by Do Nhuan, Tieng Goi Tu Long Dat (Sound from underground) by Pham Minh Tuan and Noi Vong Tay lon (The great circle of Vietnam) by Trinh Cong Son.

My Lai Peace Park will cover 41 hectares near the Son My memorial site in Son Tinh District wherein 504 unarmed civilians were massacred in March 1968 in the midst of the Vietnam War. The project aims to commemorate the victims of the My Lai massacre and provide a public space for people to learn about the nation’s history and patriotism.

The project requires an investment of VND348 billion (US$15.3 million) and is predicted to be complete in three to five years.

My Lai Peace Foundation is a non-government and non-profit organization founded in late 2016. Its mission is to promote the cultural and educational development, heal war wounds and support the community in the Southcentral province of Quang Ngai.
