Hanoi (VNA) – Donations worth over 101 billion VND (4.3 million USD) in cash and in kind from the public have been contributed to COVID-19 prevention and control efforts via the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Committee of Hanoi so far.

The committee received contributions, including 500 million VND in cash and a large number of essential goods like rice, drinking water and hand sanitiser, from 10 organisations, businesses and individuals on April 21.

Appreciating the benefactors’ support, chairwoman of the committee Nguyen Lan Huong said the assistance will give more strength to the city’s anti-pandemic forces.

She noted April 21 is the fifth day without new COVID-19 cases in Vietnam, which is an encouraging sign, but as authorities said, each people, family, organisation and locality must not lack vigilance.

The same day, the municipal VFF Committee sent part of the donations to the frontline forces in the pandemic combat.
Its officials also visited and presented gifts to disadvantaged households affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and residents in some areas under quarantine./.
