Following Uncle Ho’s example in daily work
Nearly 240 young people who have received the title “Advanced young people follow Uncle Ho’s teachings” by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union are creative at their work. They have been making valuable contributions to building Ho Chi Minh city with good living quality, and advanced and modern image, by following Uncle Ho in doing the simplest deeds.
At 5p.m, in the centre for Vocational Training and Job Creation for Disabled People in Ho Chi Minh city under the city Department of Labour, War-Invalids and Social Affairs, many officers start to leave work. Le Thi Thanh Van, 31 years old, Head of the Bureau of Organization and Administration stays at the office, circling bureaus to inspect whether lamps, fans and water is locked. That is a deed she has done for many years.
To change bad habits of some officers and trainees at the centre in the use of water and electricity, apart from encouraging her colleagues to practice thrift, she often inspects whether somebody forgot to lock water or turn off lights and fans after work. “When being reminded, some can feel discomfort; however, after listening to my will in wisely using water and electricity, they gradually sympathise with me and strictly obey the regulations,” she said.
Thanks to the deed, since 2014, Van has helped the centre to save hundreds of millions of VND in water and electricity use. Moreover, she has persuaded many people to change their bad habits which waste water and electricity.
Van is also known as a person actively doing humanitarian work. Over the past 2 years, Van has encouraged her colleagues to raise a fund of nearly VND900 million which has helped hundreds of pupils continue to go to school and dozens of disadvantaged people strive in production. “To live for others, everyday, I tell myself to follow Uncle Ho’s example in simplest deeds: loving humankind, living simply and not wastefully.

Working in the preventive health sector, Nguyen Van Dien, Deputy Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union of district 10 Department of Preventive Health, recognizes that caring for children’s health is not only their parents’ responsibility but also for those people like him. He is sad seeing some children growing in an inadequate way due to insufficient vaccination. “I know that insufficient vaccination can be because of their parents do not remember the dates for vaccination,” he said. “To help curb the problem, I detect software that can send messages about vaccination dates from a computer to parents’ phones.”
Dien encouraged his colleagues to work with wards and residential areas in the district to regularly update the list of newly-born babies, their ages, names and addresses, as well as their parents’ phone numbers. The updated data is saved in computers. “As the date for vaccination approaches, officers of the department will use the software to send messages about the date and medicine that the babies need vaccinating to each parent’s phone number,” said Dien. “Thanks to the software, almost all children in district 10 are fully vaccinated.”
Sharing his work, Dien said that the work takes a lot of time updating children’s and parents’ information. “With patience and love for the children, I encourage my colleagues to join in and we succeed.”
Van’s, Dieu’s and other young people’s deeds in following President Ho Chi Minh’s ethical example have made valuable contribution to building a high quality, advanced and modern Ho Chi Minh city./.
