Around 2,000 eye Cambodians received free medical treatment and medicines; more than 600 in Pursat, Battambang and Kompong Chhnang provinces underwent eye surgery.

Mission chief Ms. Truong Ngoc Thuy said that most of the patients were too poor to afford hospital treatment and had thought they would be living in darkness for the rest of their lives.

The goodwill ambassadors also visited needy Vietnamese-Cambodians living around the Tonle Sap in Pursat province and handed out loads of presents.
