Soldiers on duty at DK1 platforms support HCM City in COVID-19 fight

Officers and soldiers on duty at DK1 platforms under Naval Region 2 in the southern province of Ba Ria - Vung Tau have turned their hearts towards the mainland in the fight against COVID-19, by providing 300 “social welfare” bags to local people in Ho Chi Minh City - the country’s biggest pandemic hotspot at the moment.


The “social welfare” bags, comprising rice, cooking oil, fish sauce, and dried anchovies, have been presented to disadvantaged people in Tan Dinh ward in District 1.

To support the mainland, officers and soldiers at DK1 platforms have launched the “DK1 platforms join the nation’s efforts in COVID-19 prevention and control” campaign. Donations were used to fund the 300 “social welfare” bags for people in Ho Chi Minh City.

The “social welfare” bags are an illustration of the solidarity between the military and the people. They provide a source of encouragement for pandemic-hit residents to overcome the challenges posed by COVID-19./.
