Ottawa (VNA) – Vietnamese students in Toronto, Canada, have organised a music programme with the participation of nearly 300 overseas students studying in the city.

Minh Ha, head of the organising board, said the programme, entitled “20-hour flight concert”, the first of its kind, was named after the flight duration from Vietnam to Toronto.

It offered a gathering place for Vietnamese students who did not return home during the 2018 Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday, she added.

Participants of the programme also joined a fund-raising campaign for child patients at SickKids, a major paediatrics hospital in Toronto.

The event got support from Vietnamese students associations in Toronto-based universities along with many organisations such as SOS International Group, Seneca College and Quest Language Studies, among others.-VNA
