From April 13th to 15th, 2022, VinaCapital Foundation (VCF) and partners successfully implemented mobile medical outreach clinics to provide free health checks to children in Bac Son, Dinh Lap, and Chi Lang districts, Lang Son Province. Through the program, 5,017 children were examined, taken cardiac ultrasounds, and diagnosed. 17 children were detected with congenital heart defects and 13 were required to have early heart surgeries, all of whom received immediate support from VCF.
Rural Outreach Clinics program would like to express our gratitude to our valued sponsor FedEx, doctors from the Heart Center of Hospital E, and the provincial departments for joining hands with us to help disadvantaged children get heart scanning at least once in a lifetime to have early detection and treatment of heart defects.
