VTV.vn - Organisations, businesses and individuals nationwide and those abroad have so far donated over VND845 billion (over US$36 million) for the COVID-19 relief efforts, channeled to the Vietnam Fatherland Font (VFF) Central Committee.

On April 14, the VFF received donations worth VND300 million (US$12,804) from the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs; VND315 million (over US$13,444) from the Evangelical Church of Vietnam (North); VND226 million (US$9,645) from the Association of Tien Phong plastic businesses; and VND200 million (US$8,536) from Luckybest Vietnam JSC.

Ha Tay Traffic Management and Construction JSC and the Tran family in Vietnam handed over VND100 million (US$4,262) each to the front, while a family in Hanoi’s Dan Phuong district donated 10 tonnes of rice on the same day.

Talking to MoLISA Minister Dao Ngoc Dung, Man highly appreciated the coordination between the VFF Central Committee and the ministry in recent times, saying it has contributed to supporting the people across the country, especially social policy beneficiaries and poor households.

He also highlighted the importance of the VND62,000-billion (US$2.6 billion) support package of the Government for people amid difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The allocation of support must be made publicly and transparently, he stressed, adding that with its role, the VFF and its member organisations will join the supervision of the implementation, towards timely providing support to those who are really in need.
