Vietnam along with nearly 90 countries from across the world took part in a charity fair in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur on June 6, to raise funds for disadvantaged children.

The fair was organised by the wives of senior diplomats based in Malaysia .

The proceeds from the fair will be used to build two schools, one in Somali and another in Malaysia for children suffering from cancer.

Vietnam ’s stand was extremely popular with international friends, especially its handicrafts and traditional foods.

The event provided an excellent opportunity for the participating countries to showcase their products and promote their countries to others.

Vietnam’s Ambassador Nguyen Hong Thao said the fair will help the diplomatic corps to get to know each other better and make it easier for them to carry out their duties when cooperating with other nations.-VNA
