Donations in Action – Medical Cabinet, Vietnam
In the rural communities of northern Vietnam, a medical aid centre can be up to a day’s walk away so having access to basic health and safety items is vital. It can sometimes mean the difference between life and death for children.
Dung lives in the northern province of Hoa Binh and worries about the health of his four year old son and six year old daughter:
“They frequently cut themselves and get injured as falling down because they are very active”. My children sometimes got fever; the past July, both of them were infected by virus”.
Thanks to Donations with a Difference supporters, ChildFund was able to provide fully-stocked medical cabinets, and basic training, to communities like Dung’s. These supplies have made a big difference to parents as they can now treat their children’s ailments and prevent major health threats.
