Thousands of readers have sent letters to DTiNews asking to facilitate donations to Vietnamese fishermen amid tensions with China over the East Sea.


Readers have shown overwhelming goodwill towards the fishermen, who have shown bravery in protecting the national sovereignty.

One reader commented, “We all appreciate the courage and sacrifice of Vietnamese coast guard and fishermen at this time. And we would like to show our gratitude.”

Just a short time after DTiNews launched the donation programme, many readers and representatives from various organisations have visited our offices to make contributions.

A representative from Eco. Pharma Joint Stock Company, which donated VND20 million (USD952.3), said that the company wanted to show support for the brave fishermen.

Nguyen Hong Minh, a military veteran who donated VND5 million, said that has participated in battles, so he knows the importance of peace and independence. He added that he was sure that Vietnamese people were united in their determination to defend the country.
