The protective suits and face masks originated from Vietnam, are expected to arrive in the UK next week.

Earlier, the VAUK also presented 50 boxes of gloves and face masks raised by the Vietnamese community in the UK to the NHS.

Amid the complicated development of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Vietnamese Embassy in the UK is working closely with the VAUK to update information related to the disease, consular procedures and citizen protection.

At the same time, the VAUK launched a hotline to assist overseas Vietnamese in the UK when they need to contact the NHS, irrespective of personal documentation.

It is also providing free meals for medical staff at Lewisham and King's hospitals in London every Tuesday and Saturday, beginning on April 18.
