Warm and simple things in the heart of Saigon

Not only operating throughout the epidemic season, MSc. Nguyen Huu Binh has been a familiar face doing volunteer work for many years. He is the founder of the Loving Bus Organization under the Sponsoring Association of the Poor of Ho Chi Minh City. Although he is very busy with teaching work, he always remembers that as long as he is healthy, he will continue to volunteer. Talking about difficulties during the epidemic season, MSc. Nguyen Huu Binh shared: "The most difficult thing is probably the lack of support staff because there are too many jobs and difficult circumstances everywhere in Saigon, moreover, people are also afraid of being infected, so they are afraid to join. During the epidemic season up to now, the Love Bus has worked almost non-stop to give gifts to as many people as possible. Although the work is a lot, he is not afraid of being tired, just afraid of not doing enough."

In order to have enough resources, besides calling for support, MSc. Nguyen Huu Binh also promotes fundraising sales (such as selling seasonal fruits, vegetables, and selling snacks, etc) to maintain funding and, moreover, to create outputs for farmers and fishermen creating jobs for shippers and students.

In the situation that the whole country, especially Ho Chi Minh City, is facing many difficulties, the tradition of mutual affection and golden hearts needs to be shined even more. In order to spread the values, the Ho Chi Minh City Party's People's Union - organized a competition for Life Messages in 2021 with the theme "Simple things", praising the beautiful actions of union members and young people on behavioral culture, contributing to a civilized urban lifestyle, raising the sense of community responsibility.

MSc. Nguyen Huu Binh said he also participated in the contest with a short clip recording the process of giving gifts to homeless people during the epidemic season. He shared: "I participate in the contest, partly to spread the good tradition for students to follow, and also for the prize. I really want to get that award to give more gifts to people. Actually, without this award, he would still give it as usual, but it is valuable to have an amount of money, to give more."

The positive energies that MSc. Nguyen Huu Binh and the Loving Bus created has lighted a light in the dark alleys of Saigon, also lit up the tradition of Moral - Will - Creativity of Van Lang University. Sharing about the motivation to do volunteer work right in the heart of the epidemic, he just gently said: "Whenever I go to give gifts, seeing them happy makes my heart happy. I have to thank the sponsors and everyone who buys the goods. The fund has helped the Bus to alleviate some of the difficulties. So as long as he can support anything within his scope, he will do his best. He and everyone in the Bus also wonder many times how they can carry hundreds of things and go around Saigon like that. But if you think about it, try and dedicate a little, sometimes you can do things that make you happy. Every difficulty will have a solution."

During the recent outbreak, Mr. Nguyen Huu Binh and the Loving Bus Organization gave hundreds of gifts (including food and money) to many difficult cases such as homeless people, disabled people, students with difficult circumstances; giving protective clothing and gifts to doctors, nurses of Thu Duc hospital; cook for children at the Oncology Hospital, orphans in the orphanage; and many other hidden works.
