On the morning of June 11, the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese - Ministry of Foreign Affairs held a ceremony to receive donations from the Vietnamese community in the Czech Republic to support the Covid-19 vaccine fund.

At the ceremony, representatives of the Vietnamese community in the Czech Republic, Nguyen Van Tam, vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Vietnamese Association in the Czech Republic and Ta Pham Bich Thuy, Standing Committee of the Vietnamese Association in the Czech Republic donatedf VND 500,000,000 (US$ 21,719) to support the Covid-19 vaccine fund.

At the ceremony, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Pham Quang Hieu, chairman of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese, expressed his gratitude and appreciation for the support, and sharing of Vietnamese people in the Czech Republic in the prevention and control of the Covid-19 pandemic. He said that the State Committe would directly transfer the above amount to the Covid-19 vaccine fund as soon as possible.

Nguyen Van Tam said: "The gift of Vietnamese people in the Czech Republic is of little value, but it shows the affection and responsibility of expatriates to their homeland and country."
