Accordingly, these Tet gifts were given to disadvantaged Vietnamese-origin families in 14 districts in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Each gift, worth about 500,000 VND, includes rice, confectionery and necessities for living needs in the upcoming Tet holidays.

Chairman of the Khmer - Vietnam Association in Cambodia Sim Chy thanked the Vietnamese Embassy in Cambodia and Metfone, invested by Vietnam’s telecoms group Viettel, for their assistance and also pointed out difficulties Vietnamese-origin people are facing.

Ambassador Nguyen Huy Tang said the embassy will work with relevant Cambodian sides to address those issues as soon as possible.

He added the Party, State, enterprises, and social organizations of Vietnam have always created favourable conditions for Vietnamese-origin people in Cambodia, but the community’s own efforts to move forward are also of great importance.

The ambassador offered Tet greetings to the community and thanked Metfone for its support for the disadvantaged Vietnamese people.

On this occasion, Metfone announced nearly 1,000 Tet gift packages worth 20,700 USD in total to disadvantaged Vietnamese-origin families in eight provinces and cities of Cambodia./.
