In September, four MSC students answered a call from the Saigon Archdiocese for volunteers to help at the COVID-19 treatment hospital in Saigon City, due to rising patient numbers and an urgent need for additional care.

Tien Minh NGUYEN, Hung Quoc LE, Thanh Vu NGUYEN, and Vu Thanh NGUYEN were granted permission to volunteer at the hospital, with Australian Provincial Fr Chris McPhee MSC noting, “I am very impressed by their eagerness and their openness to help, to be MSC men who are willing to volunteer, to be on the frontline and to be of service. This makes me very, very proud.”

The Missionaries of the Sacred Heart Australia website posted a recent communication from MSC student Hung, who sent pictures from the front line.

“Vũ and I are well here,” he wrote. “The number of patients with COVID-19 is reducing but it could increase when Vietnam opens again. We hope we can manage this situation.”

The images he sends show the stark reality of the care centre in Saigon City, where our MSC students continue to help in any way they can.

Please keep our MSC volunteers in your prayers as they continue their volunteer work in assisting the medical team and caring for COVID-19 patients in Saigon City.
