At the donation ceremony at the Consulate General of Vietnam to the United States in San Francisco, Vietnamese Consul General Nguyen Trac Toan showed his deep gratitude to donors, who themselves are affected by the pandemic but do not hesitate to aid their home country.
He stated that in the raging COVID-19, wherever the Vietnamese are living, the everlasting power of solidarity and unity among them have been proven to be stronger than ever. These fuel the strong belief that Vietnam will overcome the disaster. He added the Consul General will quickly transfer all donations to Vietnam to timely help the fight against the pandemic.

On behalf of Vietnamese expats, David Duong underlined that no matter what they do and where they live, Vietnamese people abroad never forget their home country. Additionally, the community declared its firm belief in the Vietnamese government as well. They are more certain that the COVID-19 will soon be over due to the unity of Vietnamese people and proper control of the state.
While the COVID-19 is increasingly more complex, Consul General Nguyen Trac Toan has warned people to closely follow safety requirements in the country where they are living and to act in the spirit of solidarity. Collective action by each Vietnamese person will build up a peaceful, safe, and united Vietnam in the eyes of international friends.
On this occasion, the representative of the expat community also appreciated the consideration and kind help of the Consul General to Vietnamese people abroad.
