LEIPZIG — A Vietnamese woman donated 300,000 masks to German people in Leipzig City to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic on July 1.
Visiting her children in January, Đỗ Thị Kim Liên, president of the Green Vietnam Fund, was stuck in Leipzig City because of the pandemic.
Liên said: “Germany is a powerful nation but at this time it lacks masks. I would like to show the friendship of Vietnamese and German people and to thank the German people and Government for allowing us to stay for a very long time during the pandemic.”
To support the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Việt Nam, Liên also contributed VNĐ2 billion (US$85,800) to the local government.
As the president of the Green Vietnam Fund, Liên has run social and charitable activities such as building schools in the northwestern region, rural bridges in the Central Highlands and Mekong River Delta. — VNS
