Ophthalmology doctors from Ho Chi Minh City have provided free eye operations to some 200 disadvantaged patients in the Mekong delta province of Soc Trang.


From January 9 to January 10, ophthalmologists from Nguyen Trai Hospital conducted free eye surgery for 200 poor people, who suffered from cataract diseases. The operations were performed at the General Hospital of Long Phu District and the province’s Eye Center.


The Sai Gon Giai Phong newspaper management and the Sponsoring Associations for Poor Patients in the city covered the cost of the operations, which was around VND160 million.


In addition, benefactors and enterprises through the Xuan Nhan Ai (Charitable Spring) program raise money for the operations. The Vietnam News Agency office in the Mekong delta, from the city of Can Tho, also gave patients gifts worth VND300,000.
