HA NOI (VNS) — The Japanese Embassy in Ha Noi yesterday provided healthcare funding of US$120,700 to the Tuyet Thai Elderly Care Centre in Ha Noi's Dong Anh District.

The money will be used to purchase medical equipment such as X-ray machines 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 Viet Nam early this year. The rest of the aid would 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. — VNS
