The "Five Tigers" award is the "Fire Tiger" artwork created by artist Xuan Lam, which is inspired by Vietnam’s traditional fire tiger and Van Gogh’s irises. This special award is a appreciative and friendship recognition towards the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the Netherlands (1973 - 2023). 

Dr. Oanh expressed that this gift serves as a tremendous spiritual inspiration. This is a great honor for her, for the entire staff at SCDI and the dedicated volunteers of MNMQT, for community members who have placed their trust in us and actively participated in our efforts for a compassionate and good society. 

The Netherlands Embassy has been an enduring ally of SCDI, a steadfast friend, and a genuine advocate for MNMQT. Thanks to the Netherlands Embassy, a remarkable total of 1,400 cartons of Dutch Lady milk products have been donated to SCDI, sending to children from disadvantaged families. Furthermore, their invaluable assistance has extended to support facilitating connections to acquire medications for underprivileged patients.  

Thank you to the Netherlands Ambassador for trusting and supporting throughout the years as well as your wonderful encouragement. We sincerely hope that this bond of affection and friendship remains resilient and enduring in the years to come.
