Hanoi (VNA) - The Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Committee in Hanoi on September 17 received more than 182 billion VND (nearly 8 million USD) in cash and kind donated by localities, enterprises and individuals to support the capital city’s COVID-19 fight. 

The T&T Group presented 1 million RT-PCR test kits worth 6 million EUR.

The assistance is hoped to increase Hanoi’s testing capacity in an effort to promptly detect and "filter out" COVID-19 cases from the community, and bring COVID-19 under control, said Deputy General Director of T&T Group Nguyen Tat Thang.

Meanwhile, people and officials of Hanoi’s outlying district of Me Linh donated 20.6 billion VND for the COVID-19 vaccine fund of the city.

Receiving the aid, Chairwoman of the city’s VFF Committee Nguyen Lan Huong pledged that the donations will be distributed in a transparent and efficient manner, contributing to curbing the spread of the pandemic in the capital.

On the same day, a delegation of the Hanoi’s VFF Committee led by Huong visited and handed over aid packages to a group of disadvantaged builders residing in Tay Ho district./.
