Vice chairman of the committee Luong Thanh Nghi said Vietnamese communities abroad are an inseparable part of the nation.
He greatly appreciated the invaluable support of individuals and organisations at home and abroad towards overseas Vietnamese, especially those in the UK, France, and Russia.
A range of domestic organisations and individuals have donated medical equipment and food in support of Vietnamese expatriates affected by the pandemic, he noted.
In response to a call from Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong and the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee, Vietnamese communities in foreign countries also raised over over US$1.4 million and presented medical supplies to help the homeland’s COVID-19 prevention and control efforts.
At the ceremony, Nghi received 43,000 face masks and medicines for overseas Vietnamese in Russia, as well as 10,000 face masks for those in the UK and 10,000 face masks for those in France.
