The central province of Binh Thuan granted a Vietnamese-Danish couple who did so much to help poor rural communities throughout Vietnam the land use rights to their remote homestead on September 30.
The pair became national heroes after a local man posted their troubles with corrupt officials, real estate swindlers and petty thieves as they built 24 low-cost suspension bridges and five schools throughout the country.
Deputy head of the People’s committee of Tuy Phong District Pham Thi My Loan invited Kurt Lender Jensen and his wife Tieu Thi Ngoc Sang to the office to receive the equivalent of the deed to the 2,150 square meters they now occupy.

Loan says that the couple are now local citizens with official land and house books.
