The Association of Cambodians of Vietnamese Origin in Koh Kong province on February 3 presented gifts to more than 100 poor overseas Vietnamese living in the locality as Tet, the lunar New Year of the Vietnamese, is coming.

The gifts are the association’s efforts to bring joy for the disadvantaged during the Tet festival.

There are now over 1,000 Vietnamese Cambodians in Koh Kong province. Most of them earn their living on fishing and handicraft making with low income.

Since its establishment, the association has provided assistance for overseas Vietnamese and encouraged them to abide by the local country’s laws and contribute to its socio-economic development.

It has also called on donors to raise funds for charitable activities, including providing free health check-ups and treatment for poor Vietnamese and Cambodia.-VNA
