These are the selected recipients of this community initiative implemented nationwide. Apart from these tickets, each beneficiary also received a TET gift set for them to bring home for a joyful TET holiday and celebration together with families.
The event was attended by representatives of SABECO, Communist Youth Union and relevant sectors and departments, Miss Vietnam Tran Tieu Vy and Phuong Anh, along with other media partners.
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-19 prevention volunteers in Quang Ninh, Ha Noi, Thu Duc and Cu Chi, HCMC. These are the recipients who had to remain in their work areas throughout TET period.

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.
