At the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Russia Nguyen Thanh Son called on the participants to aid affected people, helping them to overcome aftermath of the recent floods and to help stabilise their lives.

After the drive, the embassy will send a working mission to visit and hand over the donations to flood victims in provinces that suffered the most in the recent downpours and floods.

In the flooding in late 2016, the working delegation of the embassy and the Vietnamese Association in Russia presented 10 motorboats worth VND40 million (US$1,760) each and 100 life jackets to people in the central provinces of Ha Tinh and Quang Binh.

Continuous downpours from October 10 triggered floods and landslides in Vietnam’s northern and north central regions, causing huge losses in human life and property.

Up to 75 people were killed, 38 injured and 28 others went missing. More than 2,600 households were forced to evacuate.
