“Saigontourist Group follows the spirit of “Saigontourist for the community”. Despite facing many difficulties due to the pandemic, we always join hands to respond to programs for the good of the community and society. We are fully aware of our social responsibility when accompanying the health sector in Ho Chi Minh City and the whole country in its efforts to prevent and control Covid-19. This is especially significant during the current complicated stage of the epidemic. Directly witnessing thousands of volunteer medics, doctors, and medical students coming to the city on this occasion, we were even more moved by the great contribution and silent sacrifice of the front-line team in epidemic prevention and control for our country. Through these support campaigns, Saigontourist Group wishes to contribute its small part giving strength to medical staffs and doctors at the front line.", said Mr. Pham Huy Binh – Saigontourist Group’s Chairman of the Board of Members.
