QĐND – Monday, July 26, 2010, 21:39 (GMT+7)

As part of a program to help the poor in bordering provinces in Cambodia, the Tay Ninh Provincial Red Cross, in conjunction with the Nguyen Trai Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, sent a delegation of doctors to provide free healthcare and eye surgery and present gifts to poor people in Cambodia’s Svay Rieng Province.


After examining more than 400 people, doctors from the Nguyen Trai Hospital provided cataract surgery to 176 patients with medical technologies brought from Vietnam.


Doctor volunteers from the Tay Ninh Provincial Red Cross also gave free healthcare and medicines and presented gifts to 310 poor patients in the Cambodian province.


The total cost of medicines, surgery and gifts, worth more than VND 200 million, was financed by members of the delegation and sponsors.
