BTO – The Binh Thuan Sponsoring Fund for Children in coordination with Tam Duc Heart Hospital (Ho Chi Minh City) has recently held charity checkup to screen for congenital cardiac disease for children in Binh Thuan province.

The examination will take place only 1 day on September 23rd, 2017, starting from 7.30AM at Binh Thuan general hospital. All the costs from screening, testing, X-ray, ultrasound, etc. and transport fares  are supported by the Fund. After screening, those children who are contracted with congenital cardiac disease with a surgical appointment, will be referred for a financial support in medical treatment.

The charity activity aims to reduce costs for children with congenital heart disease as they travel to hospitals in Ho Chi Minh city or Ha Noi city for checkups and surgery. It also reduces burdens for poor households with children suffered from cardiac disease.
