The volunteer doctors from Cho Ray Hospitals in HCM City and Phnom Penh teamed up with the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia in the charity event to mark the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam-Cambodia diplomatic relations.

Over 1,000 local people from difficult background received medical check-ups during the event.

The team also provided counseling on livestock breeding techniques for local people and helped renovate green spaces for several Cambodian schools.

In recent years, the government of Vietnam has enabled Cambodian nationals, especially those living along the shared border, to receive treatments in hospitals in Vietnam and pay the same rates as Vietnamese people.

Thousands of Cambodians were reported to get healthcare services in Vietnam every day.
