The Vice President of the German Bundestag (Parliament) Wolfgang Thierse has presented a cheque worth 4,000 EUR to a charity project in Vietnam.

The event took place on May 8 at the headquarters of the German Parliament in Berlin as members of parliament began a charity trip on motorbike from Germany to Vietnam.

Speaking on the occasion, Thierse highly valued the gesture of the parliament members to support a charity that helps Vietnamese children.

Lothar A. Baltrusch, who launched the motorbike trip to raise funds for renovating a school in Trieu Phong commune, central Quang Tri province, said the 15,000km trip aims to attract the public’s attention to deprived places.

He also said over 20,000 EUR donated by parliament members and other donors so far will be transferred to the World Vision organisation for the charity project.-VNA
