More than 400 gift packages, including cash, rice and face masks, were handed over to the fishermen, residing in Tam Giang and Tam Quang communes in Quang Nam’s Nui Thanh district, and Binh Dong and Binh Thanh communes in Quang Ngai’s Binh Son district.
Major General Doan Bao Quyet, Deputy Political Commissar of the Vietnam Coast Guard, said apart from raising the awareness of residents in 28 coastal cities and provinces about COVID-19 prevention and control, the coast guard force has called for material and spiritual support of organisations and individuals for the combat.
The force will make great efforts to help authorities and people in coastal localities deal with consequences of the disease, promote socio-economic development and consolidate national defence and security, he said.
