Every year for the traditional New Year, the friendship association visits and encourages members and disadvantaged families in the province.
Last week, 337 Tet gifts were presented to children orphaned by the pandemic in Dong Nai at a ceremony held by the provincial Fatherland Front Committee and sponsors.
A total of 79 gifts were donated by the Korea Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (KOCHAM), while the rest was funded by other sponsors.
The total cost for the program was VND 200 million (USD 8,830), funded by organizations of the RoK Trade and Industry Association.
Vice Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City's Party Committee Nguyen Ho Hai on Jan. 19 led a delegation of the city’s officials to extend Tet greetings to the Chinese-Vietnamese community.
He thanked the Chinese-Vietnamese community in the city for their contribution to the city’s development, especially in the fight against Covid-19 and welfare activities supporting the disadvantaged.
