Beijing (VNA) – The Vietnamese embassy in China joined over 150 diplomatic representative agencies and international organisations at the 11th International Charity Bazaar in Beijing on October 27.

Its stall was honoured as the best style one at the event, drawing visitors with traditional Vietnamese food.

The event aimed to raise fund for the building and repair of sports grounds in schools in Jinping and Malipo districts, the southwestern province of Yunnan.

Speaking at the event, Qian Wei, spouse of Chinese State Counsellor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, said editions of the bazaar have offered support to the poor and the disabled in Yunnan, Guangxi, Guizhou, Henan and Gansu provinces over the past decade.

According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, as much as over 7.1 million renminbi (nearly 1 million USD) was raised at the event. All proceeds will be used for charity activities./.
