HCM CITY — Forty-seven poor patients from the Mekong Delta region last week received free cataract surgery at FV Hospital’s Ophthalmology Ward in HCM City.
The surgery was performed by the hospital’s doctors in co-operation with the Singapore National Eye Centre.
The two hospitals provided free medical instruments and consumables for the operation as well as travel and accommodation costs for the patients.
The hospital partnership, which focuses on quality eye care in Việt Nam, has existed for the last 10 years. —VNS
