Two hundred poor children with eye defects from several northern and central provinces will get free eye surgery thanks to donations from Prudential Life Insurance Company.

Under an agreement signed on August 5 with the National Fund for Vietnamese Children (NFVC), Prudential will grant 600 million VND (30,000 USD) to the free eye surgery programme “ For children’s eyes.”

Along with eye surgery, Prudential will also sponsor eye exams for 1,200 children in Vinh Phuc, Thai Nguyen, Thanh Hoa and Nghe An provinces.

This is the third time Prudential has donated to this significant programme.

From 2012 to 2013, the programme helped 400 children recover their eyesight.

Since 2000, Prudential has cooperated with NFVC to carry out many activities to support poor children in difficult circumstances.-VNA
