The medical equipment is being given as part of a project sponsored by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) through Medipeace, which first started in 2012.
Through the project, Medipeace has funded VND 359 million (USD 15,437) during 2019 to provide rehabilitation equipment to children suffering from disabilities. In addition, the funding has gone towards helping build 2 new rehabilitation rooms in the communes of Hai Quy and Trieu Lang.
Volunteers from the RoK, along with rehabilitation technicians and local medical workers, will use these tools to provide direct support to disabled children and their parents in the rehabilitation rooms in these localities.
Volunteers from the RoK will also visit families in order to provide additional guidance to parents of children with disabilities to ensure they are using the tools given to them effectively.
Through project, a total of 205 children with disabilities have been granted access to rehabilitation equipment to improve their communication and life skills./.
