The call was made when she attended a program titled "The power of humanities" held in Hanoi on Saturday by the Vietnam Red Cross Society (VRCS) that called for help to the poor and the victims of Agent Orange.
Speaking highly of the organisation’s work in 2020 which saw numerous mishaps, especially the COVID-19 pandemic and natural calamities, Ms. Ngan said the fine tradition is a source of strength for Vietnam to overcome many difficulties.
Besides, the correct and resolute leadership and management by the Party and the State in the spirit of “no one is left behind” has also helped turn Vietnam into a bright spot in the region and the world as a whole in the pandemic fight and economic growth, she highlighted.
The Party and the State will continue strongly and effectively implementing the advocates, policies, programs and solutions to achieve sustainable poverty mitigation, the leader stressed.
On this occasion, the VRCS also launched a movement of texting messages in support of a drive mobilising assistance for the poor and victims of Agent Orange ahead of the coming Lunar New Year, which will fall on February 10, 2021.
