Vietnamese firm Dony Garment, which specialises in manufacturing clothes and uniforms on order, shifted to cloth-mask production at the beginning of the pandemic and has donated cloth masks worth VND 10.5 billion (over $450,000) to the United States as a mark of gratitude towards earlier US support for Vietnamese people during the pandemic.
The United States had offered $9.5 million to Vietnam for pandemic prevention. During a medical supplies donation ceremony on June 5, Vietnamese businesses showed their support for the global efforts on COVID-19 fight, by donating 1.3 million face masks and 100,000 non-skid socks to the United States.

Non-profit humanitarian organisation Operation USA will be responsible for receiving and distributing the shipment to communities during the pandemic, according to a press release from Dony Garment. Dony encouraged its workers to voluntarily participate in overtime shifts to produce cloth masks. Unexpectedly, many workers, without being suggested, have dedicated their earnings from those shifts to its COVID-19 Prevention Fund, the company claimed. On behalf of Operation USA, US Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel Kritenbrink expressed his appreciation for Vietnamese friends.
