The equipment is part of a programme designed to improve pediatric emergency capacity in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang.

On the occasion, 32 doctors from 14 hospitals across the province took part in a pediatric advanced life support (PALS) course on teamwork first aid skills in emergency situations like heart stop, irregular heartbeat, and severe injuries. 

VCF Chairman Don Lam said the organisation has to date sponsored heart surgery for 217 children in Kien Giang. It worked with the Thanh Ha company to run the programme on improving pediatric emergency capacity at two hospitals and a medical centre on Phu Quoc island.

VinaCapital Foundation was established in 2007 as a US-registered, non-profit, tax-deductible organisation, and was licensed as an international NGO in Vietnam.

Its operations aim at increasing living quality for Vietnamese youths through healthcare and educational opportunities.-VNA
