Ninh Binh: Needy children receive free heart checkups

Nearly 200 deprived children in the northern province of Ninh Binh were provided free cardiac examinations and consultancies by doctors from the National Heart Institute and provincial obstetrics and paediatrics hospital on March 12.

Pham Cam Ky, director of the provincial obstetrics and paediatrics hospital said that the free checkups will help detect congenital heart diseases among children so that they can have timely intervention. 

This also allows local doctors to learn from National Heart Institute doctors, he said, adding that his hospital plans to coordinate with central hospitals to offer further free checkups to the disadvantaged in the locality.

Impoverished families were also helped to apply for financial support from humanitarian organisations so that their children can have heart operations.

On March 11-12, the Department of Health and the Vietnam Red Cross in the central province of Quang Tri worked with Minh Duc Charitable Foundation to conduct free medical examinations, provide free medicine and present gifts to 5,000 poor people and 1,000 needy children in Hai Lang district.
