The Vietnam - Czech Shelter Charity has visited and presented gifts for orphanages and social protection centers in Prague, Tabor, and Karlovy Vary (Czech) on the occasion of Christmas.

The group mobilized donations and sent representatives to visit the Sunicka Center for the disabled, nursing homes, and orphans in Chodov and KRČ orphanage center in Prague 4 district, where many Vietnamese live. The association has presented hundreds of gifts to the elderly, disabled people, and orphans.

The gifts include warm clothes, woolen hats, scarves, gloves, socks and food, sweets, essential items, and specialized equipment for the centers' staff.

Despite the cold weather and the distance of 150km, the representatives of Vietnam - Czech Shelter Charity visited the Marianská Center to present to the elderly disabled in the Karlovy Vary region.

The delegates directly handed over meaningful and essential gifts on the occasion of Christmas, New Year, and Lunar New Year Festival (Tet). Representatives of the local Vietnam veterans associations and second-generation youngsters also joined the charity group.

Although most of the overseas Vietnamese in the Czech Republic were affected by the pandemic, many having their incomes cut due to difficulties in business, they managed to best prepare for the charity trips.

In an interview with a VNA reporter, Pavel Novák, Director of the Marianská Center for People with Disabilities, said that the center was excited to welcome the Vietnam - Czech Shelter Charity every Christmas. They are grateful for the affection of the Vietnam - Czech Shelter Charity in particular and the Vietnamese community in general./.
