The 98th birth anniversary of Hoa Hao Buddhism founder, Prophet Huỳnh Phú Sổ, was celebrated at An Hoa temple, Phu My town, Phu Tan district, the southern province of An Giang, on January 11 (the 25th day of the 11th lunar month).

The event was attended by Head of the Government Committee for Religious Affairs Vũ Chiến Thắng, representatives from the Ministry of Public Security, Military Zone 9 High Command and An Giang authorities, along with over 20,000 Hoa Hao Buddhism followers inside and outside the province. 

Trương Hoàng Trọng, Vice President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front – An Giang chapter, said that since it was recognised by the State, Hoa Hao Buddhism has upheld the patriotic tradition and promoted national unity.

In 2017, Hoa Hao Buddhism followers donated about VND 372 billion (US$16.3 million) to charity activities, contributing to the success in fulfilling socio-economic development tasks and building new-style rural areas.

Prophet Huỳnh Phú Sổ was born on January 15, 1920 in Hoa Hao village, Chau Doc province (now An Giang province).
