Recently, the consulate general of Vietnam in San Francisco has organised an event to receive the donations for residents hit by floods in the central region.
David Duong, chairman of CWS cum CEO of Vietnam Waste Solutions (VWS) has donated $120,000 including cash and gifts to support people in the central region who are struggling during the flood and storm season.
Consul General Nguyen Trac Toan expressed his gratitude to the noble deeds of expatriates supporting their homeland.
At the event, David Duong said that it hurt to witness the losses of residents hit by the floods in the central region. Thousands of homes and farms have been submerged in some of the most severe floods hitting Vietnam in the past decades, claiming many lives.
"I just want to make a small contribution to help the residents overcome the challenges," Duong said.
This reflects the warm heart of the Vietnamese people living in the United States as well as the people living far away from their homeland around the world.
Entrepreneur David Duong added that the majority of expatriates in the US want to return to contribute to their homeland. Most people, especially young intellectuals, want to share their knowledge to contribute to the development of the country.
Also at the ceremony, Victor Duong, vice chairman of the Vietnam American Business Association (VABA) granted $51,000 to the central region on behalf of VABA members.
VABA was established to promote investment and trade activities between Vietnam and the US. The total donations of CWS and VABA of $171,000 will be transferred to Vietnam to support residents of the central region to overcome their losses.
