Ms. Tam Tinh, 45 years old, came to RoK as a university student. She started the volunteer work with the desire to repay the love and help she had received.

During the past 19 years, Ms. Tam Tinh has continuously performed many volunteer activities for foreigners residing in RoK, such as translating Vietnamese language for Vietnamese workers, supporting free surgery for children suffering from heart disease in Vietnam or participating in teaching Korean language, supporting patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

She shared that she will continue to participate in more volunteer activities in the coming years.

This is the first time that a foreigner naturalized in RoK has received this award. In addition to the top Daesang Award, the awards ceremony this year will include the categories of Excellence awards for individuals and groups.
