HÀ NỘI — The Vietnamese Government has sent nearly 1,500 anti-bacterial cloth face masks to the Vietnamese community in Spain.
The masks were handed over to the community in a ceremony on May 28 at the Vietnamese Embassy in Spain.
Ambassador Hoàng Xuân Hải said the gift reflects the concern of the Vietnamese Government towards overseas Vietnamese even when the Government is stretching all domestic resources to prevent and curb the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
He said that on April 7, Việt Nam also presented Spain with 110,000 anti-bacterial cloth masks worth US$70,000.
There are about 2,000 Vietnamese living in Spain, with 600 being students.
Speaking on behalf of the Vietnamese community in Madrid, Trần Thị Thu Thủy thanked the Vietnamese Government, describing the gift as a timely encouragement for the community during this time of difficulty.
The Chairman of the association of families with adopted children from Việt Nam Mr Angel said the gift from the Vietnamese Government is a spiritual encouragement that shows the bond between the association and Việt Nam and the Embassy.
