A charity exhibition raising funds for impoverished Vietnamese children was opened at the Viethaus in the German capital, Berlin, on March 21.

Named “Sac Tam” (Colours of the Soul) the collection displayed 45 creative collage pieces by Vietnamese artist Nguyen Thi Phi Loan. The display pays tribute to the 40 th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Germany.

Addressing at the event, Vietnamese Minister Counsellor in Germany, Pham Viet Chien, said the artwork reflects the culture, country and people of Vietnam and can inspire ties between people in the two countries.

Various cultural performances were also held, including music from UK-based pianist Nguyen Bich Tra and violist Do Minh Thuan from Spain.

The exhibition remains open to the public until March 23.-VNA
