NDO – Over 231,400 individuals and organisations have donated nearly VND7,421 billion (US$324 million) to Vietnam’s Covid-19 vaccine fund, data (as of 11:00) on June 8 shows.

According to the fund’s management board, it has received donations worth VND4,168 billion (US$182 million) while the rest belongs to donors who have pledged but have yet to transfer to the fund.

Individuals and organisations can transfer their donations in Vietnamese dong, US dollar and euro to 15 accounts at the State Treasury and 4 banks, namely BIDV, Vietcombank, HDBank and Vietinbank.

In the northern province of Quang Ninh, a 76-year-old woman donated VND100 million (over US$4,300) to the vaccine fund, hoping to make her contribution alongside people across the country in the fight against Covid-19.

Many companies in the province have also donated billions of Vietnamese dong to the vaccine fund.
