At the event, former Vice President Truong My Hoa, who is President of the Vu A Dinh Scholarship Fund, handed over a decision recognising the Vietnamese Association in Udon Thani as a club member and membership certificates to 33 OVs living in the locality.
Hoa expressed her belief that the Vietnamese community in Udon Thani in particular and in Thailand in general will promote their role as "extension arms" of the club.
She also hoped that Vietnamese expats, with love and responsibility, will continue to make more contributions to and join hands with Vietnamese people at home in firmly protecting the national sovereignty over seas and islands.
Luong Xuan Hoa, Chairman of the Vietnamese Association in Udon Thani said that the Vietnamese community here has organised many activities towards the Fatherland, actively participating in campaigns to support and share difficulties with compatriots affected by natural disasters and floods in the homeland, and pays special attention to preserving the traditional culture, and teaching Vietnamese to their children.
On this occasion, the Vu A Dinh Scholarship Fund - the “For beloved Hoang Sa-Truong Sa” Club donated 10,000 USD to support the Vietnamese language teaching and learning programme of the Vietnamese community in Udon Thani; and presented certificates of merit to overseas Vietnamese teachers who have made great contributions to the movement.
