– As many as 100,000 masks ordered by the Vietnamese community in Germany have been presented to the World University Service (WUS) in an effort to fight COVID-19.

The masks, carried by national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, will later be sent to 16 German states.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, WUS President Kambiz Ghawami said over the past time, many Vietnamese associations in Germany have also sewn masks and offered free meals to nurseries, firefighting forces and frontline medical workers in the host country.

On the occasion, the organising board also handed over the token of 6,250 masks to Rheinland-Pfalz state.

As of May 14, the WUS sent masks to 11 German states, and more will come to the remaining states in the near future./.
