Van Lang University assisted its students to overcome the pandemic

(VLU25/7/2021)  To support VLU students trapped in HCMC, the faculties, the Office of Student Affairs, and the Office of Alumnus had come up with plans to provide the students with rationings.

According to the collected data, more than 1,000 out-of-province VLU students in HCMC were struggling with the rent and rationing cost as their apartments were among the quarantined areas. To ease the critical condition, Van Lang University executed many supporting programs to offer the students essential provisions.

On 19 July 2021, 300 gifts worth 100 million VND from Van Lang’s Office of the Alumnus were packed and transferred to the in-need VLU students staying in HCMC.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tran Thi My Dieu – President of Van Lang University, encouraged the students in her letter: “I hope you will remain calm and brave whether you are at home or still staying in Ho Chi Minh City because that will help us to think it out and act accordingly. I believe in your will and bravery. I hope you will take good care of yourselves, be responsible to the community, conduct the 5K code, obey the government’s instruction No16. I do wish you to be optimistic and spread positive messages for those surrounding you. If each VLU student can carry out these ideas, Van Lang University will indeed become an inspirational and positive example for the whole society.”

Even in hardship, we have to display the values of Van Lang University – “Morality – Will – Creativity” and spread the positive spirit to the whole society.”
