The ambassador said that he is deeply touched by the noble gesture of the Vietnamese community in Malaysia for their homeland although many of them are also facing difficulties during the pandemic. He pledged that the money will be sent to Vietnam as soon as possible.

He also extended his greetings to Vietnamese people in Malaysia, hoping them will overcome COVID-19 challenges and soon return to normal life.

For her part, Ms. Chang said that though the donation is small, it shows the love and responsibility of the Vietnamese community in Malaysia for the homeland. She expected Vietnam will soon bring the virus under control to make life normal again.
