HCM CITY — The 14-year-old art prodigy Xèo Chu has joined the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic by donating all of the proceeds from two online auctions of his paintings to the city’s healthcare workers.
The VNĐ2.85 billion (US$123,500) he received from selling eight paintings during the auctions, will be used to provide medical supplies and equipment. The proceeds will be given to the University Medical Center of HCM City.
