Vietnamese Buddhists send aid to Mozambique storm victims

20 tons of food have been donated to victims of Tropical Storm Idai in Mozambique by the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (VBS), the Vietnam Buddhist Association (VBA), and the Vietnamese community in Mozambique.

At a ceremony in Mozambique's capital Maputo on Monday, Superior Monk Thich Dong Hue, who is a member of the Executive Council of the VBS Central Committee and head of the VBA, expressed his hope that local people will soon recover from the storm, which ravaged Mozambique's central region in mid-March.

Movitel, a joint venture between Vietnam's military-run telecom group Viettel and Mozambique's investment company SPI, donated 50 tons of food to Sofala province, which was hardest hit by the storm.
