Ho Chi Minh City’s Vietnam Fatherland Front held a ceremony on September 24 to honour 147 religious volunteers who have completed their tasks of supporting doctors in the front line of the fight against COVID-19 pandemic at COVID-19 treatment hospitals in the city.
Addressing the event, Lê Anh Tuấn, Deputy Director of the COVID-19 Intensive Care Hospital, praised the support of the volunteers, adding that when the hospital was newly established, the timely presence of religious volunteers helped the hospital complete its mission of providing medical care for patients.
Vice Chairwoman of the city’s Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee Phan Kiều Thanh Hương expressed her gratitude for the volunteers’ contributions to the pandemic fight, hoping that they will continue joining hands in pandemic prevention and control efforts to make the city soon return to the new normal.
Three more similar events were also held across the city to honour religious volunteers.
Since July 22, nearly 700 volunteers of different religious groups have taken part in COVID-19 prevention and control in various hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City./.
