Speaking at a ceremony held by the Ministry of Defence on Thursday (Dec 5) in HCM City, Binh hailed the outstanding achievements of the first deployment of Level 2 Field Hospital.

“I'm very happy to welcome 63 military personnel of Level 2 Field Hospital Rotation 1 back to the country safely. All of you complied strictly with the UN’s peacekeeping rules as well as local and Vietnamese laws and military discipline,” he said.

The dedicated military medical personnel's outstanding reputation at the UN’s peacekeeping efforts honoured the country, he added.

Each member of the first deployment of Level 2 Field Hospital served as a peace ambassador from Vietnam.

In October last year, the group took over the role of its predecessor at the UK Level 2 Field Hospital.

The Vietnam Level 2 Field Hospital received 2,022 patients who were not only UN staff in South Sudan but also local officials and residents, upon requests of the commanders, according to the Vietnam Department of Peacekeeping Operations.

 

Many serious cases were successfully treated, including 62 surgeries.

As recognition of their achievements, the UN Under-Secretary-General sent letters to the Government of Vietnam, extending gratitude to the contribution of the Vietnam’s Field Hospital.

The UN presented a Certificate of Merit to the Vietnam Level 2 Field Hospital and 63 medals for peacekeeping efforts to 63 members of the group, including four individuals who demonstrated excellent service.

The third-class Fatherland Defense Order has been awarded to the Vietnam Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the Level 2 Field Hospital Rotation 1, and Colonel Hoang Kim Phung, director of the Vietnam Department of Peacekeeping Operations. —VNS
