Touching stories told before Christmas
“Christmas Gifts 2021 – The Glory of Love” is speciall because this is not only an ordinary music program, but through which the audience can also hear touching stories about the aftermath of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
In interview segments, the audience met two special guests, Dr. Le Minh Huan, Specialist of Department II of Cho Ray Hospital and also a parent of the education system Nguyen Hoang and Mr. Vo Nhat Nam, a lecturer at Hong Bang International University. As a specialist in resuscitation, Dr. Le Minh Huan has been involved in battling the Pandemic since its peak and himself has many indescribable emotions. The most memorable moment for him was the first time working in a recovery room full of patients in critical conditions, a patient held the doctor's hand and whispered, "Try to save me, doctor! My family has 9 people but 7 have died. Only my grandchild and I are left. Doctor, please save me so I can take care of my loved ones." With the dedicated care of the doctors, that patient was able to make a spectacular recovery.
