HCM City (VNA) – Military Hospital 175 under the Ministry of National Defence, in coordination with Ho Chi Minh Television Station, has organised a special art programme to honour army doctors who were on the frontline in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and those who joined UN peacekeeping missions in South Sudan.

The February 22 programme included performances that recall memories of medical workers who worked on Truong Sa Island – a place with harsh natural conditions - 30 years ago. From the first medical team with only three persons now it has received hundreds of staff who wholeheartedly take care of troops and islanders, encouraging them to feel secure to fulfill the missions of safeguarding the country’s sea and islands.
