Particularly, the VAVA conducted social activities to help AO/dioxin victims and bring justice to AO/dioxin victims of Vietnam.

Ahead of the Wounded Soldiers’ and Martyrs’ Day, the Central Committee of the VAVA will organize three key events, including a congress to honor AO/dioxin victims with outstanding achievements, an international seminar on AO-related diseases and treatment, and a meeting to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the AO disaster in Vietnam.

For his part, Lieutenant General Phung Si Tan informed the association of the General Staff’s outcomes in the development of the military since the beginning of this year, especially troops’ contributions to the fight against COVID-19.

Moreover, he also hailed the VAVA’s great efforts in caring for AO/dioxin victims and protecting their rights.

Since its establishment, the association has expanded its network of affiliated chapters across the country and raised hundreds of billions of VND to build houses, granted scholarships, and provided allowances for AO/dioxin victims.

In the coming time, Gen. Tan urged, the associations for AO/dioxin victims at all levels are to continue promoting dissemination of information about AO/dioxin consequences while closely coordinating with socio-political organizations to support AO/dioxin victims.
