Health checkups given to local people

At the program, entitled “Standing side by side with border women,” the medical staff from Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) University and Ia Rve Border Post, checked health and gave medicines to nearly 100 locals.

The organizing panel also presented 20 gifts, worth nearly VND 400,000 each, to local women facing special difficulties.

According to Le Van Hoang Lam, Chairman of Ia Rve People’s Committee, the commune has 2,230 households with 6,833 people. Their living condition is very difficult. Living far from healthcare facilities, local people have limited access to healthcare services, especially amid the complicated developments of COVID-19.

Local disadvantaged women receive gifts.

Chairman Lam highlighted such a program, saying that it was useful and necessary to take care of local people’s health in a timely manner, contributing to tightening the close-knit ties between troops and civilians in border areas.

On the occasion, donors presented 100 sets of clothing, 400 cloth masks to students of Nguyen Dinh Chieu Primary School.
