The Duy Tien Convalescent Center for Wounded Soldiers was established in May 1957. Its personnel are taking care of 58 severely-wounded and sick soldiers from 16 provinces and cities nationwide. All wounded and sick soldiers have their working ability reduced by 81% or more and need care from the medical personnel of the center.

At the meeting with wounded and sick soldiers, General Cuong inquired after and shared difficulties with them. He also praised the center’s staff for overcoming adversities to take care of the wounded and sick soldiers, contributing to beautifying the traditions of “When drinking water, remember its source” and “gratitude” of the Vietnamese people.

The senior leader stressed that the Central Military Commission and the Ministry of National Defense always pay much attention to gratitude activities with numerous meaningful programs. Notably, in 2022, the Minitry of National Defense has launched many programs such as building gratitude houses, presenting saving books to policy beneficiaries, he added.
