On the occasion, participants displayed handicrafts and traditional cuisines of their countries.

The Vietnamese Embassy introduced Vietnamese silk, lacquer, and embroidery artworks as well as traditional cuisine to visitors.

In 2018, the ALFS allocated nearly 1.3 million JPY (about 11,700 USD) to the Vietnamese Embassy to build water purification systems for the central province of Ha Tinh and to support children living in disadvantaged areas of Vietnam.

This year’s proceeds will continue to be used for the installation of water purification systems in elementary schools in three districts of the central province of Quang Nam.

The ALFS now has nearly 400 members, mostly made up of female ambassadors and staff of the 25 embassies of Asian-Pacific nations in Tokyo, as well as spouses of politicians and business leaders.
