Specifically, the HCYU Central Committee asked Youth Union branches in cities, provinces and units to encourage members and local young people to actively participate in supporting the COVID-19 fight efforts through bank transfers, cash donations or text messages, contributing to ensuring social security and the safety of the people.

At the same time, the HCYU Central Committee urged its affiliated media and press agencies to accelerate communication on the appeal of the VFF, the donation campaign launched by the HCYU Central Committee, and outstanding examples of COVID-19 prevention and control.
