Responding to the World Breastfeeding Week 2017, the Betibuti Breastfeeding Association held the Breastfeeding Journey Through Vietnam with the message of "Joining hands to maintain long-term breastfeeding." The journey was planned to go through 21 provinces, cities across the country from July 29 to August 13 and stopped in Hue on August 3.

In Hue, the two speakers who were Betibuti’s experts - Ms. Le Nhat Phuong Hong and Dr. Nguyen Huu Chau Duc shared a lot of knowledge and experience in breastfeeding, linked mothers giving and receiving the breast milk, updated UNICEF's latest information on breast milk, as well as called for breastfeeding for children’s future health.

Betibuti expert Le Nhat Phuong Hong said: "I am really impressed with the number of participants today, which is four times bigger than it was in 2015. Hue is also the city with the second highest number of participants, just following Hanoi at the present time. The number of parents and grandparents participating in the program shows that they are very interested in raising children, helping them grow well in a scientific way. This is a good sign."

Besides the parents living in Hue city, the program also attracted many participants from remote areas such as Phong Dien, Quang Dien, Huong Tra (Thua Thien Hue) and many participants from Quang Tri.
