The HUFO's delegation recently has conducted a trip to Kien Giang province to visit and exchange experience with the provincial Union of Friendship Organizations as well as presented medical supplies and necessities worth VND 50 million (USD 2.100) to encourage the border guard forces at Ha Tien international border gate.

Local border guards must continue vigilance against the disease to prevent imported cases.
