The fund-raising ceremony drew a lot of Vietnamese businesses and people in Cambodia and representatives of the Vietnamese Embassy in Phnom Penh.

Chau Van Chi, chairman of the association, said the event aims to encourage soldiers and families of fishermen in Truong Sa who are making significant contributions to the cause of national construction as well as sea and island safeguarding.

He added that the patriotism and solidarity of the overseas Vietnamese community in Cambodia will be further nurtured and promoted.

Despite facing a lot of hardships, Vietnamese expatriates in Cambodia, especially those in remote areas, still actively joined movements looking toward the homeland such as raising money to assist soldiers and residents in Truong Sa island district, flood victims in the central region, and Agent Orange (AO)/Dioxin victims, Chi noted.

The association will continue organising similar events to collect more money for local residents in Vietnamese sea and island areas, he said.
