The charity program was jointly organized by Dinh Vinh Cuong, president of 365 Group and Le Ba Linh, president of Pacific Foods who is a member of Steve Bui & Friends Foundation in collaboration with the Committee on Overseas Vietnamese in HCMC.

Steve Bui, president of the Steve Bui & Friends Foundation said: the charity program is to "respond to the letter calling for overseas Vietnamese to join hands with Ho Chi Minh city to fight the Covid-19 pandemic" and originates from the responsibility of a social enterprise, a Vietnamese who always looks towards the homeland. Especially in Ho Chi Minh city, which is being strongly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, we would like to contribute our small efforts together with benefactors, donate necessities and medical supplies to units, authorities and people of Ho Chi Minh city to help frontline forces have more protective gear to fight the pandemic.

This is the heart of individuals who are overseas Vietnamese, intellectual entrepreneurs, and the overseas Vietnamese community gathered through the Steve Bui & Friends Foundation sent to Ho Chi Minh city, wishing to soon defeat Covid-19.

At the event, Phung Cong Dung, president of the Committee on Overseas Vietnamese in Ho Chi Minh city emphasized that the Covid-19 pandemic over the past 2 years has made the business community and overseas Vietnamese encountered many difficulties. However, people still work, be creative, fight the pandemic in the host country and look to their homeland with practical and meaningful actions to support Vietnam to overcome Covid-19. The authorities and people of Ho Chi Minh city appreciate the hearts of overseas Vietnamese, especially the Steve Bui & Friends Foundation who have donated meaningful gifts at this time.

During the 4th outbreak, the Steve Bui & Friends Foundation donated thousands of medical masks, sanitizers, drinking water, necessities and many other medical supplies to provinces strongly affected by Covid-19 such as Bac Ninh, Bac Giang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city.

Through the seminar, the Organizing Committee wishes to provide more information channels to help Vietnamese health professionals refer to Italy's experience in combating the Covid-19 pandemic, including the experience of coordinating load reduction when the number of Covid-19 cases increases to have appropriate strategic advice for Vietnam, including the health sector in Ho Chi Minh city.

Head of the Italian expert delegation, Dr. Karen Kieu Nguyen said: "Since the beginning of the 2020 pandemic season, the Vietnamese Government has attached great importance to the opinions and experiences of overseas Vietnamese in the prevention and control of Covid-19. These are the enthusiasm of overseas Vietnamese towards their homeland, and also the sharing of practical experiences and in line with the trend of the world, not only Vietnam, especially in the context of the current complicated pandemic now."

According to doctor Karen Kieu Nguyen, Vietnam has been very effective in fighting the pandemic in 2020 and the Ministry of Health has made very timely adjustments.

However, with the number of new cases tending to increase, maintaining home isolation and treatment under the guidance of a family doctor over the phone and according to the treatment protocol of the Ministry of Health is a necessary solution, helping to avoid contact to reduce infection and overload hospitals.

According to the plan, Dr. Karen Kieu Nguyen and a team of 118 Italian doctors will also go directly to Ho Chi Minh city to participate in counseling, support and transfer the process of screening, treating and caring for Covid-19 patients.
