The event was attended by representatives of SABECO, the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and relevant sectors and departments, Miss Vietnam Tran Tieu Vy and Phuong Anh, along with other media partners. Due to strict compliance of COVID precautionary measures, only delegates of workers and youth union members, representing more than 600 recipients in the Southern region, took part in the ceremony.

The ceremony set the first coaches and trains to depart from HCMC, Binh Duong and Dong Nai to various provinces in the south, central and north, and vice versa. This symbolized the start of the "Tet-One-Home" journey, bringing groups of workers and youth union members back home to celebrate a warm TET with families after a year of upheaval due Covid-19.

Prior to this ceremony, the program has also distributed 800 sets of TET gift to workers and Covid prevention volunteers in Quang Ninh, Hanoi, Thu Duc and Cu Chi, HCMC. These are the recipients who had to remain in their work areas throughout TET period.

Mr. Bennett Neo, General Director of SABECO, shared, “As 2022 Lunar New Year is approaching, everyone in Vietnam is looking forward to TET to be reunited with families, and friends after a turbulent year. With the spirit of "Tet - Stronger Together", Tet-One-Home" program aims to provide opportunities to these beneficiaries to return home, and celebrate the spirit of unity, togetherness and solidarity with family as well as friends. We hope the spirit of national unity will be embraced by every home across the regions as one Vietnam during this most auspicious moment of the Vietnamese New Year”.
