Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Red Cross Society (VRC) Central Committee on June 17 received 35,000 medical face masks and 1,000 Nano silver disinfectant bottles presented by the International WeLoveU Foundation to support the country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

VRC President Nguyen Thi Xuan Thu expressed her thanks to the foundation, hoping that the two sides will maintain cooperation in humanitarian activities in the time to come.

Xuan said that the gifts will be allocated to provinces and cities that recorded positive cases, particularly those just reported pandemic outbreaks.

Jin Hyun-ok, Secretary-General of WeLoveU Hanoi, affirmed that the organisation will continue coordinating with the VRC in rescue activities in Vietnam.

WeLoveU started in the Republic of Korea in the 1990s as a non-governmental organisation. Since its official launch in 2001, more than 155,000 members in 239 regions of 64 countries have been making multidimensional efforts to improve the well-being of the socially underprivileged such as children, women, senior citizens, the disabled, disaster victims, refugees, and the poor, and to create communications and harmony of communities./.
