To date, some 10,000 copies of printed and electric books of various genres have been donated by organizations, businesses and people.

Books donated to the program are sent to the HCMC Youth Cultural House, where they are classified, packed and disinfected by the organizers before being delivered to people in isolated areas, quarantine zones and field hospitals.
