In many localities, the FU’s levels have promoted responsibility and creativity in advising the Party committees and authorities to organize, mobilize and connect resources (including the army, police , youth volunteers…) to help farmers in pandemic areas promptly harvest and consume agricultural products.
Farmers throughout the country have upheld the good cultural tradition of the nation, the spirit of solidarity, mutual love and affection, contributed efforts and means including giving thousands of tons of agricultural products to help people in pandemic areas, setting up groups to help each other take care of crops, harvest crops in the condition that many areas are isolated, workers are lacking... and organized many other meaningful activities.
