HCMC - Students at Vinschool Golden River in HCMC have created over 100 paintings expressing concern about the devastating bushfires in Australia.

“Dear all people and all animals in Australia, we were very sad when we heard about the forest fire, we all knew that it brought a lot of damages to your country […] We hope that you can get over it,” a group of students wrote on their paintings.

Meanwhile, artist Hong Anh, who was affected by the recent bushfires in Australia, has painted an artwork titled “The prayers of the flame”. Supported by the Vietnam-Australia Friendship Association, the artist has presented her painting to the Embassy of Australia in Vietnam.

Accepting the gift, Charge d’Affaires Rebecca Bryant talked about the devastating impact of the fires and the strength and resilience of the Australian people and expressed her deep appreciation for the beautiful artwork and for all of the support Australia had received from Vietnam.

According to the Australian Embassy, recent bushfires have affected 272 plant species with 22 of those listed as critically endangered. Data of the United Nations Environment Program showed that over 18 million hectares had burned in the Australian bushfire season as of mid-January and many millions of animals have been killed.
