Appreciating those valuable contributions and being aware of the community's responsibility to policy beneficiaries, the Party Committee and Leaders of the Friendship Union always pay attention to and employees in the whole union actively responding to the activities of "repaying gratitude", demonstrating the tradition of "drinking water, remembering the source", turning this meaningful activity into an annual activity of the friendship union.
Duy Tien nursing centre, one of the five ones under the watch of the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, was established in May 1957. Over the past six decades, the centre has cared for thousands of war invalids, even nearly 700 during peak times.
It now provides care for seriously wounded and sick soldiers with injury severity from 81% and above. The oldest veteran is over 90 years old while the youngest veteran is just over 60.
Doctors and nurses at the centre have to help the veterans eat, bathe, and to take their medicine every day.

The Vietnam Invalids and Martyrs Day (July 27) is a special chance for the entire country to commemorate millions of martyrs and war invalids who sacrificed their lives and health during the wars.
In 1947, just two years after President Ho Chi Minh delivered the declaration of independence, the first decree on preferential policies for war invalids and fallen soldiers was issued.
The same year, July 27 was designated as the national war invalids day, which was later renamed the War Invalids and Martyrs Day, to call on the entire community to support war invalids and martyrs’ families in acknowledgement of their contributions to the nation.
