Agent Orange victim supporting app launched


The Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA) on Tuesday morning launched an app to call for financial support for Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin.



According to the association, nearly 4.8 million Vietnamese people were exposed to dioxin and around 3 million suffer from health problems today. Many of the victims have died, while millions of their descendants are living with deformities and diseases as a direct result of the chemical’s effects.

At the launch ceremony, Association President Nguyen Van Rinh said that the Vietnamese government and many individuals and organisations inside and outside the country have joined together to assist AO/dioxin victims who are among the poorest in Vietnam.



With the expectation to help increase support for the victims, the association launched VAVA PLUS.



“I hope that the app is widely promoted so that more people can know and give their assistance to AO/dioxin victims,” Rinh said.



Lots of delegates at the ceremony install the app and offer their donation.



People need to open the Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin’s website available at http://vavainfo.vn for the app installation.
