HÀ NỘI  Doctors from the Facing the World Foundation from the United Kingdom are performing free health checks and surgeries on poor handicapped children, particularly those with maxillofacial disability.

The doctors are working with their Vietnamese counterparts from Hồng Ngọc General Hospital to perform the surgeries at the hospital from September 25 to 29.

Eligible patients will undergo surgeries if they meet health requirements.

The young patients will be provided post-surgery care and support at the hospital for one to two months after the surgery, depending on the condition of the child.

This is the fourth time that Hồng Ngọc Hospital has co-ordinated with Facing the World Foundation to carry out the programme.

The hospital has received 300 applications to participate in the programme, of which 60 have been checked and found to be eligible. The children come from different localities across the country such as Hà Nội, HCM City, Tuyên Quang, Hà Giang and Nam Định provinces.  VNS
