In Hanoi, the delegation visited and presented 500 gifts to doctors and workers of Dong Da General Hospital and Thanh Nhan Hospital.

At the event

In Ho Chi Minh City, KTO representatives inquired after and presented gifts to  500 medical personnel at COVID-19 Treatment Hospitals No.8 and 13, Ho Chi Minh City Hospital for Tropical Diseases, and Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine.

Each gift included red ginseng, ginseng chicken soup, vitamin C, Gac (Momordica cochinchinensis) oil supplements, and other Korean traditional souvenirs.

Through these presents, KTO would like to express deep gratitude to Vietnamese doctors and healthcare workers on the front-line of the COVID-19 fight.

The gift presentation was part of KTO’s Korea Love Box 2021 program launched in Vietnam this October with a message of “Give love, give strength.” Under the program, KTO will carry out diverse activities to give more strength to Vietnam’s COVID-19 front-line force.

Witnessing Vietnamese doctors and nurses taking care of patients in Hanoi-based Thanh Nhan Hospital and Dong Da General Hospital, Park Jong Sun, KTO Chief Representative in Vietnam, found him really lucky because he is living and working in Vietnam. “I am very grateful to the doctors who have worked hard around the clock, so that we could enjoy a peaceful life,” Park said, adding that after nearly 30 years of establishment of diplomatic ties, the Republic of Korea has always considered Vietnam its closest friend.
