Kuala Lumpur (VNA) – Representatives from the Vietnamese embassy and Vietnamese community in Malaysia have visited and handed over 50 gifts to Vietnamese people who are working and living in Selangor state and affected by the recent flood.

Heavy rains last weekend caused serious flooding in Malaysia, especially in the industrial state of Selangor - the hardest-hit area. It is also home to a large number of Vietnamese workers.

Vu Duc Minh, Second Secretary at the embassy in charge of the Vietnamese community in Malaysia, said this is just one of the embassy's activities to support Vietnamese citizens in the country.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia will continue to work together with donors to ease difficulties for flood-stricken Vietnamese people in Pahang state as well as those who were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Penang state, he said.

Dinh Thi Thu Huong, who has been working in Malaysia for seven years, said the attention and support from the Vietnamese embassy and Vietnamese community in Malaysia give her more confidence and encouragement to overcome difficulties, adding that the recent flood has damaged all household appliances in her house./.
