Sep 28th, 2016 Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam, Dung Quat Economic Zone, Binh Thuan Commune, Binh Son District, Quang Ngai, Vietnam: Doosan Vina in cooperation with Chung Ang University (CAU) Medical Center of Seoul South Korean is sponsoring free surgery for needy children in Korea to help them have a better life. This is the eighth surgery undertaken by Doosan and CAU. Between September 26th and October 2nd four of Quang Ngai’s neediest children and their parents will visit Korea to have cleft lift and palate surgeries as the guests of Doosan and CAU.
Mr. Le Viet Chu, Quang Ngai Provincial Party Committe Secretary who is escorting the children to Korea for the surgeries said, “Doosan Vina is the first FDI in Quang Ngai and the ‘Made in Vietnam’ products that are crafted by Doosan Vina’s skilled Vietnamese technicians and delivered to countries all over the world. At the same time, Doosan Vina was recently recognized by the Provincial Peoples Committee (PPC) of Quang Ngai Province as an Excellent Enterprise because of its extensive CSR activities that include medical trips to Korea such as this, scholarships and housing assistance for underprivileged people in our area.”
Mr. Le Viet Chu, Quang Ngai Provincial Party Committe Secretary visited children after the sugery.
“This eighth Doosan Vina and Chung Ang University (CAU) sponsored surgical trip to Korea for needy children is a part of our continuous and ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs. Our CSR is focused on three main areas: healthcare, education and housing. We chose these because we feel that they are important foundations to improve people’s lives and can make a big difference in the quality of their lives,” said Yeon In Jung, CEO of Doosan Vina.
The father of one of the children taken to Korea for surgery, Pham Van Xit said, “I never thought or even dreamed that my daughter could have this surgery, we don’t even have the money to pay for treatment in Vietnam. Having it done in Korea is like a dream. To think that my daughter will be able to have a better life is a miracle that will warm her and our entire family for the rest of our lives; I am so grateful, thank Doosan Vina.”
Since Doosan Vina signed a Memoradium of Understanding with CAU and Quang Ngai’s PPC in 2009 the program has provided surgery for more than 65 cleft lift and palate children, 19 cataract patients and has supplied free medicine, medical equipment and medical exams for 16,000 Quang Ngai residents. The total value of this latest surgical program for Quang Ngai children is nearly 95,000 USD. Since 2009 Doosan has spent more than $5.5 million on its local CSR programs in central Vietnam.
