Vietnam provides free medical check-ups in Cambodia

(VOV) - More than 1,000 patients in Cambodia’s Koh Kong province have been provided with free medical check-ups and treatment along with free medicine by a delegation of more than 40 voluntary nurses and doctors from Ho Chi Minh City.

During its stay from March 29-30, the delegation examined and distributed drugs to patients- mostly overseas Vietnamese and poor people- with diseases related to ophthalmology, reproductive health and bone & joint disorders.

Koh Kong Deputy Governor Pen Bun Chhuoi hailed the Vietnamese businesses and philanthropists for their coordination with the provincial Overseas Vietnamese Association to take care of local people’s health.

“Charitable activities run by Vietnamese philanthropists in Koh Kong have made practical contributions to the Cambodian Government’s poverty reduction policy which is a testament to the longstanding friendship between the two nations”, he noted.
