Meanwhile, the “Vets With A Mission” aided Thua Thien-Hue with nearly 10,000 USD through the province’s Union of Friendship Organisations to assist medical checks and treatment for 15 disadvantaged patients with fatal illnesses in Thuong Quang, Thuong Lo and Huong Son communes of Nam Dong district.
