The event aimed for humanity’s goals and assistances to the medical staff and volunteers in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sunshine is an annual voluntary social activity organized by the Faculty of Public Relations and Communication. This year, the event aimed to help the medical staff fighting against the Covid-19 pandemic and the volunteers, who bravely put their all for the community. For the last several months, their daily cycles were the meals in a hurry, hazmat suits all day no matter the weather, and sacrifice for a pandemic-free city.

“Sunshine 2021,” with the message of “sunshine in your heart,” was organized to spread the love and share the challenges with the frontline fighters. After a week of rallying, “Sunshine 2021” had funded 87,561,000 VND from 2,137 “beams” of sunlight, including the PR lecturers, alumnus, and current students at Van Lang University.
