The ambassador and staff of the Swedish Embassy in Vietnam participated in the VnExpress campaign "Workout from home - sending happiness" to raise funds for a Covid program.

The "Workout from home - sending happiness" campaign is organized by VnExpress Hope Foundation, inviting participants to post articles, photos and videos on home workouts. Each post will contribute VND10,000 toward the "Medicine packages for Covid patients" program.

After only three weeks, from Aug. 26 to Sept. 16, the campaign has attracted more than 1,000 participants, of various ages, from across the country. One of the most actively participated teams in this campaign was the staff at the Embassy of Sweden in Vietnam.

Anne Måwe, Ambassador of Sweden, comments on the campaign "Workout from home - sending happiness".

"The 'Workout from home - sending happiness' initiative has encouraged people to exercise at home in time of lockdown and we all know that this is important for the physical as well as mental health in this situation. Each post contributes to a medical bag for F0s (Covid patients). So it's also meaning contribution to those suffering from Covid-19 right now," said Anne Måwe, ambassador of Sweden.

According to Måwe, thanks to this campaign, staff at the Swedish Embassy was motivated to exercise every day, while actively posting and having fun.

Medicine bags will be sent to the district health center in Ho Chi Minh City to be distributed to patients. Each bag (valued at VND380,000) includes antipyretic, vitamin, anti-inflammatory, and anticoagulant medicine sufficient for seven days under the guidance of the Department of Health.

The campaign now features 6,389 images, videos, and tracklogs, shared workouts, with VND63.89 million collected to support the Covid-19 patients.

"Medicine package for Covid-19 patients" campaign aims to support patients self-isolating at home. Each donation worth VND380,000 ($16.65) can help buy medicine for one patient. For more information regarding donation methods, kindly refer to this link.
