Ambassador Vu Hong Nam said many Vietnamese workers in Japan have lost their jobs after local enterprises suspended operations.

The Embassy, therefore, launched a campaign to support the Vietnamese community by presenting them with food and essential goods.

Embassy staff have donated a day’s salary to support Vietnamese workers in Fukushima prefecture who lost their jobs to buy food, he said.

He added that the Embassy will continue coordinating with Vietnamese organizations in Japan to boost campaigns.

Buddhist nun Thich Tam Tri, President of the Association of Vietnamese Buddhists in Japan, thanked the Embassy and the national flag carrier for their valuable support.

She said her association has worked with the Embassy and other organizations to assist disadvantaged workers, students, and the unemployed during the COVID-19 outbreak.

On the same day, the Embassy and relevant Vietnamese agencies worked with Vietnam Airlines to transport medical supplies and equipment from the Vietnamese Government and people to Japanese counterparts.

They also coordinated with relevant Japanese agencies to arrange a flight taking 298 Vietnamese citizens home.

According to the immigration and residence management department at Japan’s Ministry of Justice, Vietnamese are the third-largest expatriate community in the country, at an estimated 411,968 as of the end of 2019, a year-on-year increase of 24.5 percent.
