Phnom Penh (VNA) - A fundraising campaign in support of Vietnam’s COVID-19 vaccine fund has been launched in Preah Sihanouk province of Cambodia by the Consulate General of Vietnam in the province and the Executive Board of the provincial Khmer-Vietnamese Association.

More than 2,000 USD was raised at the launching ceremony on June 8.

Consul General Vu Ngoc Ly briefed participants at the ceremony on the current COVID-19 situation in Vietnam and efforts made to contain the pandemic.

Speaking highly of the assistance for the Vietnamese community in Cambodia and compatriots at home in the recent past, Ly called on those residing in Cambodia at large and in the country’s southwestern region in particular to further support the Vietnamese Government and people in the fight against COVID-19.

The campaign will last until the end of this month./.
