In the framework of medical cooperation between humanitarian NGO Global Care and Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy, the organization has conducted free surgeries, bringing back smiles to more than 100 children with cleft lip/palate over the past years.

In 2019, the delegation led by Prof. Dae Hyun Lew (Head of the Department of Plastic Surgery, Yonsei Severance Hospital, Seoul, Korea) will continue offering free surgeries for the children.

Previously, the doctors at the Hospital of HUMP have carried out screening for patients.

After being given physical examination and counseling by the Global Care's surgical team including leading experts and professors in the field of plastic surgery in Korea, together with Vietnamese doctors, 29 patients (from the Central region, Hanoi and Thai Nguyen) having cleft palate and cleft lip defects will be operated completely for free from March 18 to March 21. In addition to having US$ 300 financial support including surgery and hospitalization costs, each patient indicated to be operated will be helped by Hyundai Motor with an additional 2 million VND.

The surgery program will be performed at the Plastic surgery unit, the Department of Trauma, Orthopedic, Thoracic Surgery, Department of Odontology and Stomatology of the Hospital of Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy. On this occasion, the professors and doctors will re-examine the patients who had surgeries previously

In addition to the mission to return smiles to the children, this is also an opportunity for the two sides to study, sharing professional experience and effectively cooperate to provide the society with better health services.
