Vietnam-RoK exchange in support of AO victims

(VOV) - More than VND450 million was raised at a Vietnam-Republic of Korea cultures and arts exchange in the Mekong delta city of Vinh Long City on December 17.

Vietnamese and Korean artists presented special songs and dances on Vietnam’s land and people and Agent Orange victims.

Phan Thanh Rang, President of the Vinh Long City Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin, said the province has more than 6,000 AO victims, including nearly 3,000 children. Most of them badly need financial support to re-integrate into the local community.

All money raised on the occasion will be used to build houses and a health centre for AO victims and provide scholarships and other services for them.
