Doctors treat poor Cambodian people

A team of 35 doctors and nurses of the Vietnam People’s Army is providing free health check-ups, treatment and medicine to servicemen and people in Cambodia.

The activity aims to strengthen solidarity and friendship between the two countries’ armies and peoples, especially in the Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Year 2012.

During the five-day working trip, which ends on September 19, the doctors and nurses from Military Zone 9 have treated about 2,000 patients in the two provinces of northwest Battambang and Kampong Speu, west of Phnom Penh. In addition, they were presenting gifts to local people.

Deputy Commander of the military zone 3 of the Royal Cambodian Army Mora Ret expressed thanks for the team’s help, saying that it is an illustration of the solidarity of the two peoples.
