As many as 500 impoverished Cambodian patients will receive free health check-ups and treatment by Vietnamese and Cambodian doctors from September 10-12, raising the total number of beneficiaries this September to 1,000.

The activity is part of a partnership between the Cho Ray – Phnom Penh hospital, Samdech Techo Voluntary Youth Doctor Association and authorities of Chabar Ampov district.

The Cho Ray – Phnom Penh hospital has treated more than 100,000 patients and conducted 800 surgeries since it opened on January 13, 2014, according to its General Director Nguyen Hoang Nam.

It has also engaged in a number of social welfare activities in Cambodia, including free health examinations and discounts for those in poverty.

The hospital, built at a total cost of 38 million USD, is a key project in the field of medical facilities construction between Vietnam and Cambodia.-VNA
