The gifts included daily living tools and items such as toothbrushes, laundry soap, notebooks, ballpoint pens, instant noodles, and clothes.

Lieutenant Colonel Nguyen Quang Tuyen from the unit affirmed that this humanitarian activity has strengthened the foreign diplomacy, expanded exchanges and cooperation with other units, and promoted the image of Vietnam's blue beret force, creating favourable conditions for the team to continue to successfully carry out their tasks in the area.

According to Tuyen, since its deployment at UNISFA, the unit has been organising the repair and maintenance of an arterial road with a length of more than 50km passing through the Amiet market and regularly rescuing bogged trucks. In the past month, the unit has organised the rescue of six UN vehicles and local people.
