A NOI — The Viet Nam Association for Victims of Agent Orange (VAVA) yesterday called on people across the country and international friends to further support Agent Orange victims in their daily lives and fight for justice.

The association delivered the message on the first day of the 50-day programme to commemorate 50th years since Agent Orange/dioxin was first sprayed in South Viet Nam on August 10, 1961.

In the message, the association said nearly five million Vietnamese people were exposed to dioxin and three million suffer from health problems due to the exposure.
