Books and films donated to AO/Dioxin victims
Nhan Dan – A ceremony was held in Hanoi on July 25 to present 200 copies of a book and 100 DVDs of a documentary film to the Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange(AO)/Dioxin (VAVA).

The event was attended by Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Do Quy Doan and VAVA Vice Chairman Nguyen The Luc.

The book, ‘Nửa thế kỷ một nỗi đau’ (Half a Century - One Pain), and the film, ‘Chất độc da cam, nỗi đau còn đó’ (Agent Orange – Lingering Pain), feature the physical and spritual pain suffered by AO/Dioxin victims and reflect how people of all social strata are trying to help them integrate into the community.

It is hoped that these gifts will contribute to raising public awareness and increasing the voice of Vietnamese AO victims and international friends in their continuing struggle for truth and justice.

The ceremony was organised by VAVA and the Ministry of Information and Communications to promote the cause and support victims of AO/Dioxin in Vietnam.
