Currently, 58 Vietnamese are staying at the center, which was transformed from the dormitory of the Meiyuu Japanese language school, about 40km from Tokyo.

The center represents a joint effort by the embassy, the association and the Kyodai charity group to help Vietnamese citizens who are stranded or meet difficulties caused by the pandemic.

Put into operation in August, it provides free services for the Vietnamese in need.
