On the afternoon of May 28, at India Embassy in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City Buddhist Sangha presented 33 ventilators that worth VND 3,4 billion (US$ 148,000) to the Indian people.

The ceremony was attended by the Venerable Thich Duc Thien, Vice Chairman and General Secretary of the VBS’s Executive Council; Most Venerable Thich Nhat Tu, Deputy Head of the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha Central Committee’s International Department; India Ambassador to Vietnam Pranay Verma and the embassy staff.

Thich Nhat Tu said: "33 ventilators that worth VND 3,4 billion are too small to compare to the serious Covid-19 pandemic situation in India. However, the gift shows special affection and empathy of Buddhist practitioners toward the medical crisis in India, contributing to reduce suffering and protect the lives of the Indian people during the war against the current Covid-19 pandemic”.
