Thu Cuc Hospital offered voluntary medical examination to IV Social Support Center of BaVì
In response to Viet Nam day for people with disabilities 18/4/2016, Thu Cuc International General Hospital conducted free medical examinations and offered drugs to nearly 100 disabled people across Ba Dinh District at Thuy Khue Healthcare Center on 13th April 2016.
Located on Tay Dang Commune – Ba Vi District – Hanoi City, about 60 km away from Hanoi, IV Social Support Center of Ba Vi provides care and nurturing to orphans, abandoned infants, street children and elderly homeless people, disabled people, etc. who are vulnerable people of the society, experiencing difficulties in life and they really need the support of the society.
Each people in the Center get an allowance of 150.000 VND from the Government every month. It’s hard for them to manage everyday life with this small amount of money. Some of these try to grow vegetables and raise pigs to improve their living standards, however, most of them are disabled and small children, they need special care from others. With the desire to share difficulties, showing care and love to these lives, Thu Cuc Hospital decided to offer them free medical examination, drugs and gifts.
A team of nearly 40 staff members from Thu Cuc Hospital started their trip at 6.30 am, carrying medical equipment, hundreds of gifts and drugs to the Center. On arriving at IV Social Support Center in Ba Vi, our team quickly performed medical examination for 360 people including 303 adults and 57 children.
Witnessing the torturous conditions of the people here, Thu Cuc Hospital wishes to share more with disadvantaged people in the society. In the future, Thu Cuc Hospital will continue to promote voluntary activities at different areas of the country to build goodwill in the community.
