The event, co-organized by the Vietnam Association of Agent Orange/ Dioxin Victims, the Chemical Army, and Kon Tum provincial People’s Committee, introduces 400 photos, documents, and items featuring consequences of the Agent Orange/ Dioxin disaster, Vietnam’s actions to resolve the aftermath of the chemical warfare, and the journey to claim justice for Vietnamese AO victims.
Nguyen Vuon, a war veteran exposed to the toxic chemical, said: “We are informed about the harmful effects of toxic chemicals and how to maintain our health. The exhibition condemns American army for spraying Agent Orange/Dioxin on Vietnam, which has caused long-term consequences on many generations. The whole Vietnamese nation condemns and the world must condemn the crime.”
At the opening ceremony, army units, businesses, organizations, and individuals donated 27,800 USD to Kon Tum’s Fund for AO victims.
