Phnom Penh (VNA) – The Embassy of Vietnam in Cambodia on July 19 handed over a cash donation worth 85,000 USD to diplomatic missions and Khmer-Vietnam Association in Cambodia to aid Vietnamese-Cambodians affected by COVID-19.

The donation was sourced from Vietnam’s COVID-19 prevention and control fund, managed by the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee, under the approval of Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh.

It will be used to provide food, necessities, medical supplies and cash for vulnerable people, including workers suffering from income reduction, the unemployed and those from difficult backgrounds.
