OVs in Europe present Tet gifts to patients at home
PANO - A mission from the Vietnamese Garden Association in Europe has recently visited and presented 70 Tet gifts, worth VND 300,000 each, to poor child patients in the Central Institute of Hematology and Blood Transfusion.

Founded nearly three years ago, the association has attracted some 7,000 overseas Vietnamese in Europe and other countries, who love gardening and planting trees typical of Vietnamese.
Though their communications mainly on Facebook, the association’s members have maintained their close links and effectively supported the needy in the homeland.
This is the second time the association has directly sent its delegation to bring a warm Tet to compatriots in need at home.
Apart from Tet gifts, it has supported flood-hit victims in central region, poor people in remote areas and people with disabilities.
The money used for their good deeds is from the sales of plants that its members grow.
