The Presidium of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee and the sub-committee for mobilising social assistance under the National Steering Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control on September 16 launched a programme calling for more support from people nationwide for the COVID-19 fight.

Do Van Chien, Chairman of the VFF Central Committee and head of the sub-committee, read a letter to launch the campaign.

The letter of appeal stated that at present, the pandemic still remains complicated, with social distancing order being applied in some places to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

There is a great number of people facing difficulties due to being in areas under lockdown and those losing their jobs and needing support, it added.

Meanwhile, the State's resources are limited so it needs support of the whole society for the work, especially ensuring social security for the poor and vulnerable people, and funding the purchase of vaccines serving the nationwide COVID-19 immunisation programme, it noted.  



Cadres, civil servants and public employees, members of the armed forces, entrepreneurs and enterprises of all economic sectors, international organisations, overseas Vietnamese, religious organisations, and people from all walks of life were called on to donate money, goods, medical supplies, and food for the drive.

After the launching ceremony, the sub-committee received donations and support registrations of cash and goods worth over 290 billion VND (nearly 12.7 million USD) in total by more than 30 organisations, businesses and individuals.

At the event, the sub-committee also officially launched an online donation system at  http://vandongxahoi.mattran.org.vn.
