In addition to receiving money donations, she also held an auction and collected hundreds of millions of dong.
The organizers of the Sesame Seed Fund with the message "Everybody is a sesame seed, a fairy opens the door to love" have held the fourth auction. The fund's "Love Grocery" has received many valuable items donated by benefactors.
From July to now, philanthropists have donated tens of billions of Vietnamese dong for the purchase of ventilators, oxygen generators, sets of electric injection pumps for 60 Covid-19 treatment facilities and medical centers in districts citywide.
