For Immediate Release
AUSVIET CHARITY FOUNDATION
IN AUGUST 2016 WILL PROVIDE 1000 FREE MEDICAL CHECKS, 1000 DENTAL TREATMENTS AND CATARACT OPERATIONS FOR POOR PEOPLE IN NGHI THUAN VILLAGE, NGHE AN PROVINCE
A medical team consisting of Australian doctors, dentists and other allied health professionals will travel to Vietnam on 29 July 2016 to help the poor people in Vietnam. The mission will be completed over one week with goals to provide free medical checks, dental treatments and cataract surgeries in Nghi Thuan village located within Nghi Loc district of Nghe An Province.
AusViet Charity Foundation (AVCF) has chosen this area as a part of its yearly plan. This coastal village is considered one of the poorest areas of Vietnam due to frequent sufferings as a consequence of monsoons, typhoons and other environmental hardships. People in Nghi Thuan village – especially children – suffer from many ailments but cannot afford treatment despite the help and support of local government and charities; however, it has yet been visited by any international medical team.
The group of 34 volunteers from many parts of Australia will work with 30 local health professional volunteers to provide 1000 general medical checks, 1000 dental treatments and 70 cataract operations from 31st July 2016 to 4th August 2016.
The mission is estimated to cost more than $100,000 Australian dollars. The funds have been generously donated by the Australian community – with special thanks to the Vietnamese community throughout Australia. In addition, pharmaceuticals and medical and dental supplies have been kindly donated by many Australian companies to use during this mission to aid in achieving the enormous goals that have been set. Each of the Australian volunteers also offer their services free of charge and have paid for their own travel and accommodation expenses.
AusViet Charity Foundation is a non-profit charity organisation registered with the Australian Charity and Non-Profit Commission and is approved for tax exemptions and deductibility by the Australian Taxation Office. It also is approved by the Vietnamese authority to operate as an international non-government organisation to operate in Vietnam.
Dr Phuoc Vo, OAM, chairman of AusViet Charity Foundation, is pleased to announce that his volunteers are eager and ready the forthcoming mission. All AVCF volunteers share the common belief that “together we bring hope and health” for those in need – here in Australia and overseas.
