The“Connecting the East Sea” campaign launched month-long campaign “Connecting the East Sea” to raise funds to equip fishermen with telecommunications devices was launched on September 15.

Besides calling for donations, the programme also encourages fishermen to continue their operation in the sea in order to develop the local economy and safeguard Vietnam’s sea and island sovereignty.

Joining the programme, donors can send text messages “BIENDONG,” worth VND10,000 each, hand in communication equipment, and transfer money to bank accounts.

Vietnam now has about 130,000 fishing vessels, only 10% of which have been equipped with communications devices.
