When the whole country is eagerly preparing for the coming Lunar New Year, somewhere – in remote remote areas of the country, there are still individuals and households struggling in semi-fed and semi-clad worries. Many children are going to school day by day in the condition of inadequate facilities and school supplies, etc. A clear awareness of the role and social responsibility for the community in the sustainable development path of the business, on 4 January 2020, in response to the program “Winter warmth” mainly organized by Quang Ninh Province’s Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital, Vietmedical Company (VMED Group) joined hands to bring love to children and relatives at 4 poor areas in Binh Lieu district, Quang Ninh province: Sam Quang village, Phieng Sap village – Dong Tam commune, Loong Vai village, Ngan Kheo village – Hoanh Mo commune.
” Winter warmth” is a volunteer program organized by Quang Ninh Province’s Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital in the co-operation of Vietmedical (VMED Group), Vietcombank Quang Ninh, Vietcom Co., Ltd., Nhat Minh Company and other donators. The program brought the most practical gifts to the people in remote areas under poor and cold condition in winter and especially children in the highlands who are semi-fed and semi-clad but very studious.
Thanks to the support of the local government, the volunteer group gave 250 gifts to the children (each gift included warm coats, desks, backpacks, notebooks, pens). 217 Tet gifts including rice, cooking oil, seasonings, and salt were also delivered to each household. In addition, the delegation spent time to visit, encourage and give Tet gifts, warm blankets and cash to 12 families with extremely difficult circumstances in each village.
Also at the program, the “Winter Warmth” volunteer group conducted medical examination and freely provided medicine to people. This is really a deeply humanistic activity, helping upland people understand their health status, promptly update knowledge about prevention of some common diseases as well as access to medical examination and treatment services, thereby raising awareness of health protection. The doctors conducted medical examination for 300 people and detected many medical diseases such as high blood pressure, cirrhosis, gout, etc especially the Screening for Critical Congenital Heart Defects for children in the region and detected 3 cases of Ventricular septal defect, advised the family to make follow-up examination for surgery. This is really a deeply humanistic activity, helping upland people know about their own health status, promptly update knowledge about prevention of some common diseases, as well as access to medical examination and treatment services, thereby raising awareness of health protection.
Directly witnessing the poverty and sufferings here, directly presenting gifts with love and kindness. Directly witnessing the smiles, happiness and embarrassment on the immature faces of the children when receiving warm clothes and learning gifts, and the happiness shining the austere faces of the people when seeing the charity group, et, all fatigue due to the long and dangerous traveling distance of each member of the charity group immediately appeared. At that moment, sympathetic hearts and love are spreading in the immense mountains and forests of Binh Lieu.
These gifts and activities bring a small part of assistance to the people and children here, however, the charity group still hopes that this will be the fire of love to bring the warmth in this winter so that Sam Quang, Phieng Sap, Loong Vai, Ngan Khoe will be less cold; life becomes less hard and people become closer together.
The program of meeting and giving gifts to the people took place in a very short time, however, it is very meaningful. Through this trip, each member of the delegation has more profound experiences about the lives of ethnic minorities, understands the shortages and misfortunes they are suffering, and contributes a small part in dispelling the cold winter and leave nice impressions in the hearts of the people here.
Vietmedical (VMED Group) would like to express sincere thanks to the local authorities in Binh Lieu district, Quang Ninh province, Quang Ninh Province’s Obstetrics and Pediatrics and the accompanying units for their enthusiastic support, joining hands to successfully develop and implement the program “Winter Warmth”.
The goal of Vietmedical (VMED Group) is to focus on the business development in combination with helping people have a better life and building up an increasingly developed society and country through our activities. With meaningful practical actions, Vietmedical (VMED Group) hopes to gradually promote, build good values and strongly spread the inspiration to the community.
Each trip is a story and we will continue the journey of love and kindness in the future….
