Over VND2 billion and 900 gift packages were raised for the Agent Orange/dioxin (AO) victims in Danang in a music programme on January 13.

The programme, entitled “Mua xuan cho em” (Spring for children), was jointly organised by the Danang  Association for Agent Orange/dioxin Victim (DAVA), Danang Newspaper and Danang Television in the lead up to the upcoming Lunar New Year festival. 

Twenty gift packages valued at VND500,000 each were also presented to the victims during the event.
