Hanoi (VNA) - Deputy Chairman of the Vietnam – UK Friendship Network (VUFN) Warwick Morris has vowed to continue calling on international organisations to support Vietnamese Agent Orange (AO) victims, adding it into the list of its major activities.

He made the pledge during a working session with the Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA) in Hanoi on May 6, together with a delegation from the Vietnam – UK Friendship Association (VUFA).

The VUFN and VUFA always support VAVA’s activities, Morris stated.

VAVA Chairman Nguyen Van Rinh, for his part, said VAVA chapters have raised more than 1.1 trillion VND (50 million USD) to offer scholarships, build homes and provide wheelchairs for millions of victims.

The association also built 26 rehabilitation facilities and offered vocational training to AO victims, he said.

Rinh hoped that ties between VAVA and VUFN as well as VUFA will further progress, and they will facilitate exchanges to raise mutual understanding.-VNA
