Recently, members of the Youth Chapter, Trade Union and Women’s Union Chapter of Military Region 7 donated medical supplies and necessities, worth around 2.5 billion VND in total, to assist the COVID-19 prevention and control efforts in localities in the region.
Earlier, many military young people volunteered to cooperate with other forces to combat the pandemic in the pandemic hotbeds of Bac Ninh and Bac Giang.
These practical deeds were part of the activities in response to the Youth Volunteer Summer Campaign 2021 and “Military youth join hands to combat COVID-19” movement. They have not only shown military youth’s responsibility for the community, but also contributed to enriching the tradition of the Vietnamese youth.
