A football and a jersey bearing the signatures of all players and members of the coaching board of the male Vietnam national team who won the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 will be auctioned to raise fund for the poor and AO victims.

They are gifts that the team presented to Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc who handed over them to the VRSC for auction to raise fund for the poor and Agent Orange/dioxin (AO) victims on the occasion of Tet.

Many agencies and enterprises have registered to support the programme, while the chapters of the VRSC in cities and provinces nationwide have also planned to present more than 2 million Tet gifts to the poor and AO victims.

The programme, themed “Tet for the poor and AO victims,” targets to provide at least 1.5 million Tet gifts for the poor, AO victims, policy beneficiaries as well as families affected by natural disasters. The VRCS Central Committee will provide 100,000 Tet gifts worth 7.2 billion VND (309,600 USD) to 42 provinces and cities across the country.

A mobile message campaign has been held as part of the programme to call for support from society. By texting TET to 1407 from December 15, to February 14, 2019, a mobile service subscriber will contribute 20,000 VND to help the poor.

On the occasion, the VRCS Central Committee will also honor 40 collectives and individuals who have accompanied with the agency in conducting humanitarian and charity activities in 2018.

The “Tet for the poor and AO victims” movement has been launched since 1999. So far, the campaign has raised 6.7 trillion VND (288.1 million USD) to support more than 22 million disadvantaged people and AO victims during the traditional Tet festival.
