1000 FREE MEDICAL CHECKS, 1000 DENTAL TREATMENTS AND CATARACT OPERATIONS FOR POOR PEOPLE IN NGHI THUAN VILLAGE, NGHE AN PROVINCE IN AUGUST 2016

A medical team consists of Australian doctors, dentists, and health professionals will travel to Vietnam on 29 July 2016 to help poor people in Vietnam. The mission will last for one week and will provide free medical checks, dental treatments, and cataract surgeries in NghiThuan village, NghiLoc district of Nghe An Province.

AusViet Charity Foundation has chosen this area as a part of its yearly plan. This coastal village is considered one of the poorest areas that frequently suffered from monsoon, typhoon and environmental hardship. People in that village especially children are suffered from many ailments but cannot afford treatments despite the help and supports of local government and charities. However, it has yet been visited by any international medical team.

The group of 34 volunteers from many parts of Australia will work with 30 local health professional volunteers to provide 1000 general medical checks, 1000 dental treatments and 70 cataract operations from 31st July 2016 to 4th August 2016.

The mission estimated cost is more than 100 thousand Australian dollars. The fund is generously donated by Australian community especially the Vietnamese community in Australia. Medicines, medical and dental supplies are donated by Australian companies to use in this mission. The Australian volunteers, in addition, contribute their services free of charge and also meet their own travel and accommodation expenses.

It also is approved by Vietnamese authority to operate as an international non-government organisation to operate in Vietnam. This organisation is also a NGO member of Auscham Vietnam.

Dr Phuoc Vo, OAM, chairman of AusViet Charity Foundation, said that his volunteers are ready and looking forward to the forthcoming mission.  Every volunteer believes that “Together we bring hope and health” for those in needs.
