The entrepreneurs also handed over 2,300 masks, 150 bottles of hand sanitiser and medical supplies to Sa Pa Secondary School in Lao Cai province’s Sa Pa district, where all the students are from ethnic minority groups.

Earlier, the delegation presented similar gifts to quarantine facilities, medical centres and military units in Ho Chi Minh City, the southern province of Tay Ninh and Quang Ninh province in the north.
