Ms. Nguyen Minh Nguyet, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the World and Vietnam Report, on behalf of overseas Vietnamese in Canada, presented CAD5,000 for a representative of the Vietnam Coast Guard forces; CAD4,000 for a representative of the Vietnam Fisheries Surveillance Force and CAD4,445 for a representative of fishermen.
At the meeting, Ms. Nguyet said that from June 2014, the Vietnamese Embassy in Canada has continued to organize activities to mobilize overseas Vietnamese to raise funds to support Vietnam’s law enforcement forces in the sea and fishermen.
Like previous times, on behalf of the overseas Vietnamese in Vancouver (Canada), the Report sent the money to support the homeland’s sea and islands. This time, on behalf of the overseas Vietnamese in Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto (Canada), the Report presented the money to support the Vietnam Coast Guard, fisheries surveillance force and fishermen, who are on duty protecting the homeland’s sea and islands.
On behalf of the Vietnam Coast Guard, Major General Nguyen Van Tuong thanked the overseas Vietnamese community in the cities of Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto in particular and Vietnamese people in Canada in general. He also confirmed the law enforcement forces of Vietnam continue to overcome all hardships to perform duties at sea and not betray the expectations of the people throughout the country as well as the overseas Vietnamese.
“This is a very meaningful gift. We will buy additional means of rescue to serve the process of performing duties at sea and necessary equipment to improve the life and ensure the safety for the law enforcement forces," shared Mr. Tuong./.
