The International Food Festival has been an annual cultural event of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for many years. The fair gathers more than 130 booths of embassies, cultural centers and international organizations from 36 countries around the world, offering unique culinary experiences from different cultures. This year, the event continued to be held at the Diplomatic Complex – 298 Kim Ma street on 06 December, 2020.
At this event, with the desire to continue raising funds to support the Central region, AFV and AAV jointly opened a booth with the theme “Together, we shall come back stronger”. The money collected will be transferred to people in the Central region who are affected by flash floods and landslides in 03 provinces: Quang Tri, Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue.
Bringing to the fair, in addition to the organizations’ featured publications, AFV and AAV also showed stories, pictures and actual statistics about the damage and lives of people in the Central after the flood at this time. Besides, we also displayed some specialties from Tra Vinh province, as well as Ong Tay choux cream cakes at the booth.
Tra Vinh is one of 12 active regions of AFV and AAV. Programs in Tra Vinh focus on: Building sustainable alternative livelihood models to respond to natural disasters and climate change, improving people’s right to access to clean water, enhancing access to quality public services such as education and health. Two specialties of Tra Vinh including Coconut Nectar and Polyscias Fruticosa Ginseng Tea, were selected to display at this fair.
The booth of AFV and AAV spread the message of sharing with people in the Central region, as well as raised an amount of 2,075,000 VND. All this money will be transferred to people in the Central who are affected by flash floods and landslides in 03 provinces: Quang Tri, Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue.
Up to now, AFV and AAV have received a lot of trust and love. We are very grateful for the generous and persistent support of benefactors during the past time. AFV and AAV look forward to your continued support in the last days of 2020, as well as in 2021. Once again, thank you very much!
