The private clinic is seeking a range of household items to present to the impoverished ethnic minorities of the region: the Xe Dang, the Mo Nam, the Ka Dong and the H’Re. Donations could be anything from clothing, educational materials, hygiene and cleaning supplies to non-perishable food. FMP is asking members of the community nationwide to donate such items to any of their clinics listed below:
298 I Kim Ma, Ba Dinh, Ha Noi
Ho Chi Minh City
Diamond Plaza Clinic: 34 Le Duan, Q1, HCMC
District 2 Clinic: 95 Thao Dien, Q2, HCMC
Care1: The Manor 1, 91 Nguyen Huu Canh, Binh Thanh, HCMC
50-52 Nguyen Van Linh, Hai Chau, Danang
The items will then be handed out during FMP’s visit from Sep. 11 to Sep. 18. Suffering from some of the highest mortality and lowest life expectancies in the region, 20 doctors, 30 nurses and 70 support staff will provide medical check-ups, health care advice, and vaccinations for 3,500 households in Kon Plong. The team will also provide treatment for those suffering from illness and disease, and instruct local people in basic hygienic practices, from hand washing to tooth brushing. During this period, all of FMP’s clinics will be closed except for emergency services.
