More than 2,500 poor people in the two central provinces of Quang Nam and Quang Ngai enjoy free health care and medicine from a charity programme run by the Korean Doosan Vina Inc. and the Hospital of Chung Ang University

Accordingly, it costs US$133,200 to check the health of 1,500 elderly people and children in Quang Ngai province and about 1,000 poor people in Quang Nam province.

Within the framework of this fifth charity programme, 13 children with cleft lips will receive free surgery and two children with congenital heart disease will later be transferred to the Hospital of Chung Ang University in the Republic of Korea for surgery. 

On the first day of the five-day programme, nearly 600 patients were examined and given medicine, said Dr. Lee Chee Song, the head of the charity group.

Since the programme was launched in 2009, nearly 12,000 people in these two localities have been given health check-ups, and 60 children suffering from cleft lips, 19 cataract patients and two children with heart disease have been operated on. To date, the programme funding has received US$1.88 million.
