Appreciating the role of women in bringing peace and happiness to the world, Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga said he hoped that the "Mother's scarfs" project would contribute to attracting public attention to women's issues.

The international art project named "Mother's scarfs" was initiated by a Kazakh artist named Leila Makhat, president of the Eurasian Academy of Arts. Makhat wishes to collect scarves from global influential women to redesign and hold art exhibitions in many countries.

Through the project, she would like to demonstrate scarves as symbol to protect children and the earth, showing empathy between people at a time when the world was facing many challenges.
