RoK supports paediatric heart disease surgery


QĐND – Tuesday, April 20, 2010, 20:43 (GMT+7)

Four disadvantaged Vietnamese children born with heart disease on April 20 flew to the Republic of Korea for free heart surgeries with assistance from the RoK’s Sunny Korea.


They are this year’s first humanitarian surgeries worth 48,000 USD funded by Sunny Korea, the Vietnam Children’s Fund said.


Sunny Korea is scheduled to provide heart surgery for eight more Vietnamese children in August and November of this year.


The non-governmental organisation operating in health and education has provided surgery at a total cost of about 1.1 million USD for 110 Vietnamese children born with heart disease since 2002 through the Vietnam Children’s Fund.
