He said that despite facing difficulties caused by the disease, Vietnamese expatriates in Germany have not only supported each other but also initiated campaigns to join Germans in fighting the pandemic.

These campaigns have attracted the participation of Vietnamese nationals across Germany, with thousands of face masks, medical equipment, and food delivered to organisations, hospitals and rest homes in the European country, the ambassador said.

These activities demonstrate the community’s sense of responsibility for their second home, he added.

According to statistics from the embassy, there are some 125,000 Vietnamese or Germans of Vietnamese descent living in Germany.
