In a Facebook post, the office voiced its gratitude and appreciation for the support of the Vietnamese Government and people living in Germany in battling the disease.
Vietnam donated 110,000 protective masks to Germany and the same relief package to other European nations which are heavily hit by the pandemic, including France, the UK, Italy and Spain, said the office.
In addition, the Vietnamese community has offered thousands of masks and gloves for hospitals and nursing homes in Germany.
Vietnamese restaurants in the country are distributing thousands of food portions to doctors and nurses in hospitals’ intensive care units.
In return for the assistance, the World University Service Germany presented 20 water filter systems to the Vietnamese Government, which are able to provide clean water for 12,000 people, especially those in remote and mountainous areas, the German office noted.
