Charity Trip to Kon Tum

Written by

A team comprising 26 doctors, 19 nurses and 61 support staff representing Family Medical Practice partnered with the Embassy of Israel to visit Vietnam’s central highland province of Kon Tum in September.


The aim of the week-long humanitarian mission was to perform health checks and offer a wide variety of treatments for small minority communities located in remote regions of the province.


Kon Tum is regarded as home to some of the more impoverished communes in the Central Highlands. Doctors saw patients and visited families from Mang But, Hieu, Po E, Mang Canh, Dak Ring, Dak Nen — Tu Ret, Dak Long, Dak Tang and Ngok Tem communes.


Doctors saw over 10,000 patients in total across the week in what was the second time Family Medical Practice had visited the Central Highlands, with the team having also visited Quang Binh in the past.
