After examining the children and consulting with their families, the doctors will choose the kids most in need and conduct free-of-charge surgery.

The children receiving surgery must be at least six months old and weigh at least eight kilogrammes.

The Operation Smile Organisation and the Vietnam Sika sponsor the programme.

Doctor Le Trung Nghia, head of the medical team, said to prevent defects, women must keep healthy during pregnancy and avoid stress and hard work.

Phan Dinh Phung, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Phu Yen province, said the programme was especially helpful for poor families.

Phung express his hope that the programme would continue to be carried out in Phu Yen and neighbouring provinces.

He expected the doctors would transfer surgery technology to local doctors so that they can conduct surgeries for children themselves.
