Britain-Vietnam Friendship Society raises funds for Vietnamese AO victims

July 4, 2006


The Britain-Vietnam Friendship Society (BVFS) installed a booth in London on June 18 to sell Vietnamese-made arts handicrafts to raise funds for Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange (AO)/Dioxin.

Also on display were photos reflecting the Vietnamese AO victims’ sufferings which moved British visitors and made them more aware of the consequences of the toxin sprayed by US troops over Vietnam in the 1961-1971 period.

BVFS Secretary Len Aldis told a Vietnam News Agency reporter that the defoliant has still caused serious consequences to the Vietnamese people who have not yet been compensated.

On this occasion, the BVFS collected signatures from British friends and foreign visitors in support of the Vietnamese AO victims. (VNA)
