Speaking to the media soon after arriving for her second visit, Ms.Sukhinova said she was very happy to be back to the “friendly and passionate” country.
 
Asked about the charity program “Dau chan tu thien” (Footprints of charity), she said her first stop is the northern province of Ha Nam where she and RAAS staff would visit and inaugurate Red Cross offices and offer gifts to 100 poor people.
 
After that she will visit Ha Long Bay, Ho Chi Minh City, and the southeastern province of Binh Duong Province.
 
She is slated to appear together with the 2004 Miss World Maria Julia Mantilla Garcia at a concert to raise money for the “Vong tay nhan ai” (Compassionate arm) fund for poor patients. It will be held on June 2 in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho.
 
The two beauties will also accompany newly-crowned Miss Universe Indonesia Pamela Bianca Manalo at a concert to raise funds for the “Vu A Dinh” scholarship at Nha Trang on June 7.
 
Before arriving in Vietnam, Ms.Sukhinova was in Hong Kong (China), the USA and some other places, also for charity work.
