BINH PHUOC (VNS) — About 1,000 poor people, particularly those from ethnic groups in the central Binh Phuoc Province, have received free health check-ups and medicines.
The health check-ups were conducted on Saturday and Sunday by military doctors, agencies from the province's Bu Gia Map District, the HCM City-based My Duc Hospital and Ngoc Lan Clinic, besides the "Viet Nam Live to Love" fund and the Viet Nam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin.
Colonel Nguyen Thanh Ruan, an official from Military Zone 7's economic department 778, said the activity aimed to improve the relationship between the army and the people, and to help the local residents become more aware about disease prevention and control.
Several people donated food items such as rice, salt, cooking oil and instant noodles to help the local people plan the celebrations for the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday. — VNS
