Hanoi (VNA) - The Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Committee in Hanoi on April 7 received over 10 billion VND (429,200 USD) in cash as well as goods worth 162 million VND from offices, religious organisations, enterprises, and individuals in the capital to support the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

President of the VFF Hanoi Nguyen Lan Huong said she very much appreciated the contributions and added that the city now has more resources and equipment for its disease prevention and control efforts.

Tackling the disease will continue to be a complex matter into the foreseeable future, with Huong expressing a hope that businesses and donors will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the city.

The committee will work with the city’s Department of Health to ensure that the funds and goods are allocated in a transparent manner.

The VFF Hanoi has handed over 40 water purifiers to the Department of Health, which will be installed at local hospitals, and provided 130 million VND and 2,600 face masks to 26 inter-sectoral COVID-19 prevention and control stations around the capital.
