The Vietnamese government has launched a programme on mobilising the public to donate for the cause against COVID-19.
At the launching ceremony of the programme on "Mobilising all people to support the fight against COVID-19” at the headquarters of the Vietnamese Fatherland Front, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc called on people from all walks of life to donate to the programme, which is aimed to further cement solidarity and mutual support in the country.

The programme has great significance in the context that the country is affected by the epidemic, which has been attacking more than 170 nations and territories across the world. It also demonstrates the government’s strong determination to eradicate the outbreak.
The Vietnamese Fatherland Front is the key agency to receive donations from the public, organisations, and enterprises.
As of the afternoon of March 19, the front received more than VND282 billion ($12.26 million) from donors. The use of the money will be made transparent and the funds will be transferred to units and individuals who are directly engaging in the provision of medical treatment for COVID-19 patients, and those who are undertaking medical treatment of the virus, as well as those who live in areas isolated due to the epidemic.
Each VIR staff also donated two days of salary to support the government’s efforts to eradicate COVID-19.
