This was a practical activity by the university’s staff and trainees to mark the 74th anniversary of the August Revolution (August 19) and the National Day (September 2).

Alongside free health checkups and medicine, the university’s doctors and nurses also gave health counseling and equipped the recipients with knowledge to prevent and treat common diseases as well as ways stay healthy.

Such an activity, as Major General Pham Duc Tho, Vice Political Commissar of the University, said, was of significance because it demonstrates the Vietnamese tradition of “When drinking water, remember its source” and “Gratitude”. It also shows the university’s personnel’s high sense of responsibility, sentiments and gratitude.

On the same day, the University’s delegation handed over several “Gratitude and Great Unity Houses” along with 30 gifts to policy beneficiaries and poor households in Nguyen Binh district.

Over the years, the university has organized similar activities in remote and mountainous areas nationwide, contributing to passing along the glorious tradition of the nation and the military for its youth and helping them learn more about difficulties facing soldiers and people in these places.
