In expectation of sharing and encouraging leprosy patients being treated at Bac Ninh Leprosy and Dermatology Hospital,  a volunteer program was held by Hanoi University of Home Affairs on March 19, 2021 to visit and give gratitude gifts to the patients at Brave Leprosy Camp directly under the Bacninh Leprosy and Dermatology Hospital. The program was accompanied by the Vietnamese Heart Fund by the VTV1-channel Vietnam Television, the Zym's House, Shoppe Academy and Vita Vina Overseas Study Company.
 
Welcoming the delegation was Ms. Nguyen Thi Xuan, who has been here for more than 33 years

Mr. Pham Quang Quyen, the Director of Library and Information Center at Hanoi University of Home Affairs shared: “This is an opportunity for lecturers and students at the University as well as representatives from many enterprises to participate in volunteer programs and to express their sympathy for the love-lacking leprosy patients. We hope that we will have much more meaningful programs to spread to the community where many difficult situations else still need to be helped".
Mr. Quyen was visiting and giving gifts to leprosy patients.
The majority of leprosy patients here are the elderly disabled with their amputated arms and/or legs, which makes their movements difficult. Most of them do not have their families and entirely depend on the care of the hospital and the patient council.
The female nurse Xuan, who has been working here for more than 33 years, said while being a preschool teacher in 1957, she had come this place to work as a volunteer taking care of the leprosy with her boundless love. However, right after she had first witnessed an old leprosy man leaving the world in loneliness without relatives, a cry and a white scarf, she had decided to stay in here in order to attend to the patients.
Being moved by warm feelings filled with love, she said, “For many years, we have been receiving numerous doctors of the hospital, many delegations, associations, organizations and units with the desire to remove social stigma and alienation and bring us sincere and warm assistance, which help us feel warmer, less lonely, and motivated to overcome the pain of illness ”.
Many patients entering the hospital at the age of 14, 15 are now over 80 and 90 years old. When they knew that the delegation was visiting, they were so excited. Mrs. Trang confided, 'I am younger than many elderly patients here. I feel delighted that I can travel and interact more. I'll look like them very soon. However, it is so thrilled for me now to meet you all and be taken to the Do Temple, too.
After visiting and giving gifts, the volunteer delegation invited them to visit Den Do temple in Bac Ninh. The married couple Dang Tran Hieu and Tram Anh, both alumni of the University and the director of the Zym's House, who are always responding to the charity programs and often accompany with the University, gave their thanks to the Hanoi University of Home Affairs for the meaningful trip while expressing their hopes to have more companionship with it in the coming time to be able to spread the better value of love in each person themselves.
