At the event, Hoa briefed the OVs about challenges faced by ethnic minority groups, fishermen and soldiers in coastal areas.

She also highlighted the fund’s activities, which support the education of ethnic minority students and develop human resources in poor and remote areas, and the club, which aims to help children of soldiers and residents in coastal areas and islands.

The meeting urged the OVs to join national efforts to protect the sea and island sovereignty and to support the needy in their homeland.

Before the meeting in Canberra, Hoa met with the Vietnamese Consulate General in Sydney and Perth, and with Vietnamese expatriates and students in Brisbane and Adelaide.

She also presented certificates of merit for organisations and individuals for their excellent contributions to the Vu A Dinh Scholarship Fund and the “For beloved Hoang Sa-Truong Sa” Club.
