|The Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) contributed a total of VND500 million to the Vietnam Fatherland Front for COVID-19 combat.
In giving the lump sum, Tran Quoc Tuan, VFF vice chairman, expressed his hope that the donation can be used to support the country in its battle against the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.
Receiving the donation, Tran Thanh Man, president of the Vietnam Fatherland Front, displayed sincere thanks to the federation while also hailing the VFF’s overall contribution to the nation’s COVID-19 fight.
This comes after the head coach of the Vietnamese national men’s football team Park Hang-seo donated US$5,000 to aid the national effort to negate the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic.
In addition, football stars Van Toan and Van Quyet each gave VND130 million and VND120 million, respectively, in order to enable medical workers and soldiers working on the frontline of the COVID-19 battle to get the essential equipment they need.
Meanwhile, V.League 1 defending champions Hanoi FC have contributed an array of essential goods and cash with an approximate value of VND2 billion to the Vietnam Fatherland Front to fund their efforts to battle the current health crisis.
Elsewhere, the VFF has also launched a range of community activities to encourage greater levels of hygiene to halt the spread of the virus, such as a hand washing challenge, which has seen the participation of head coach Park Hang-seo and notable Vietnamese footballers.
