The assistance for St. George Hospital includes 10,000 medical face masks, 1,000 protective suits, along with eyewear and gloves. They were delivered free of charge by Vietnam’s national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines to Frankfurt am Main city on the flight that repatriated German citizens.

Mayor Burkhard Jung highlighted that the long-standing cooperation between Leipzig and partners around the world becomes all the more important amidst crises.

He appreciated the Ho Chi Minh City-based Military Hospital 175, Vietnam Airlines and other partners creating conditions for the medical aid to reach his city, noting that without the relevant sides’ coordination, including the policy-related support from Vietnam and Germany, the aid wouldn’t have been able to be transported.

Meanwhile, Director of St. George Hospital Iris Minde expressed her delight at the aid of Vietnam.

She highlighted the successful cooperation between her hospital and Military Hospital 175 for many years, adding they jointly set up a healthcare center for sharing experience.

Leipzig and its twinned HCM City have been developing strong connections in multiple spheres. Leipzig is also the only German city to have opened a representative office in the southern economic hub of Vietnam.

Besides, St. George Hospital and Military Hospital 175 have been partners of each other for years. They have effectively implemented many training and exchange programs in both countries.
