On the Monday, SODI held various activities, including distributing fliers, presenting a placard, with 20,000 signatures from people all over the world, demanding compensation from U.S. chemical companies involved in producing the chemical weapon in Vietnam.

SODI has called on more support for Vietnamese AO victims.
 
SODI staged a skit about the cooperation among the U.S. chemical companies in raising their income no matter the damage caused to the Vietnamese.
 
The campaign received much media coverage from various German newspapers and television stations.

Since 1990, SODI has carried out 800 humanitarian projects, worth US$77.8 million, in many countries.
