At the event

At a ceremony on August 12 to hand over 15,000 EUR worth of donations to representatives from Rheinland-Pfalz state, Vietnamese Ambassador to Germany Nguyen Minh Vu expressed sympathy to people in Rheinland-Pfalz and Nordrhein-Westfalen states, who are facing difficulties caused by serious flooding recently.

Trinh Thi Mui, head of the fundraising board said that the Vietnamese community in Germany consider the country their second homeland. Witnessing the heavy consequences of natural disasters in the two western states of Germany, the Vietnamese community in Germany has responded to the appeal for donations to share some of the difficulties with the people affected by the flood.

According to Mui, the board has received a total of 30,050 EUR from 382 individuals, families, businesses and associations.

The historic flooding last July devastated Rheinland-Pfalz and Nordrhein-Westfalen states, destroying most infrastructure and claiming the lives of at least 191 people, while tens of thousands of people were injured.
