On August 25, 2018, over 30 Coteccons’ blue-tee volunteers had gathered at Eye Surgery Department of Nguyen Trai Hospital (District 1,HCMC) to bring "light gifts" to nearly 200 cataracts and meat eye patients. This is the fourth time the program has been organized by the Trade Union of the Company and Ho Chi Minh City Association for Poor Patients.
Although being tired of moving away from the night before, many patients were still feeling happy when their eyes would be healed and light would come back to their lives soon.
As one of the nearly 200 poor patients receiving free replacement in this program, mrs. Truong Thi Nga in Ninh Thuan said: it's so touched when doctors of Nguyen Trai Hospital gave me an absolutely free surgery and help me see things clearly.
Pham Thi Huyen (70 years old, Can Gio) said her eyes have been opaque for many years even she still has to work every day. For her, having a free eye surgery is just like a dream. "My eyes are bright, I can take care of myself, do sewing on my own, work like normal people. Thank the hospital and sponsors for bring me better in life. " Her voice was as weeping but still mixed with joy, that makes every member of the volunteer group feel also happy.
Year after year living in the scene of blurred eyes and slow moving, it's just only a few dozen minutes later I can see my familiar house, loved ones in the family, neighbors ... thanks to free eye surgery program, spoke Vo Thi Nhien in Tien Giang.
Nun Nguyen Thi Nguyet, head of the poor group of Binh Thuan province, said: "During charity trips, I have been contacted by many elderly people in difficult circumstances. If it's unlucky to have unclear eyes, they not only have many inconveniences in life but also become burdensome for the family. Today's humanitarian surgery program has brought light to the poor in many localities. I hope the program will continue in the coming years, so that more people will be treated for free cataracts and help them recover lost sight.
More than 1,000 poor patients have received free surgery and seen the light after more than a year participating in this meaningful charity program. Coteccons and the Ho Chi Minh City Association for the Poor have helped to connect poor people in remote and mountainous areas with accessing to modern ophthalmic services.
On October 19, 2018; the Coteccons union held an internal meeting to celebrate the Vietnamese Women's Day October 20th. The event welcomes the attendance of all female staffs, the Executive Committee of the Company's Trade Union and the Board of Directors.
