The Japanese Embassy in Hanoi on August 27 provided healthcare funding of 120,700 USD to the Tuyet Thai Elderly Care Centre in the suburban district of Dong Anh.

The money will be used to purchase medical equipment such as X-ray and rehabilitation machines, and patient monitoring.

The grant is part of a non-refundable aid deal worth 325,080 that the Japanese Embassy signed with Vietnam early this year.

The rest of the aid will be used to build primary schools in Bac Kan and Ha Nam provinces.

Currently, 32 elderly individuals aged 58-103 are receiving care at the Tuyet Thai Elderly Care Centre.-VNA
