Recently, I was very excited and moved when read the information in Vietnam Agent Orange Magazine that on October 5, 2023, the Belgian Chamber of Representatives passed a Resolution calling for support for Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange with 134/134 of votes. Recently, President of the Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin, Senior Lieutenant General Nguyen Van Rinh and especially Chairman of the National Assembly Vuong Dinh Hue, have sent their thank-you letters to Ms. Eliane Tillieux and the Belgian Chamber of Representatives.
The approval of the Resolution by the Belgian Chamber of Representatives is a great mental support for Agent Orange victims like me and many other ones. At the same time, it has contributed to making the world community better understand the Agent Orange disaster in Vietnam. We feel very grateful to Ms. Eliane Tillieux and the members of the Belgian House of Representatives.
Currently, in Vietnam, there are still millions of people affected by Agent Orange/dioxin used by the US Military during Vietnam War. Most of them are leading the lives of poverty and illness. Many victims are suffering pain and misery every hour and every minute. Many children are born with birth defects, and many women do not have the happiness of becoming mothers and wives...
In recent years, the Communist Party and State of Vietnam have issued many policies and paid attention to improving and enhancing the material and mental life of victims of Agent Orange. However, this is not enough to compensate for all the losses that the victims of Agent Orange are suffering. Therefore, care and support, both materially and mentally, of the world community, including the Government and people of Belgium are very necessary so that Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange can ease their difficulties and rise up in life.
Once again, on my own behalf and on behalf of Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange, I would like to express my most sincere thank to Ms. Eliane Tillieux and Belgian Chamber of Representatives.
