The traditional dishes, such as Chung (square glutinous rice) cake and fried spring rolls, were made and then sold to raise fund to help poor children in the homeland and the activity this time has raised more than 100 million VND.

Ms. Phuong Phan, a founding member of the NSL, said that the event was planned in early December, 2021, as members have taken precaution amid the spread of COVID-19 in the city.

According to her, the event also created opportunity for children born and raised in Australia to learn more about the traditional culture of their homeland.

The NSL has actively connected Vietnamese families in Australia and supports needy students in Vietnam for years.

In 2021, NSL raised nearly 14,000 AUD to present scholarships worth 2 million VND each to 79 disadvantaged students in 12 localities in Vietnam./.
