China-funded free-surgery program brings new hope to Cambodian children with heart disease

Phnom Penh – Sey Muoy, a Cambodian teenager from northwestern Battambang province, has returned to a healthy life after she had her congenital heart defects (CHD) remedied by Chinese surgeons last year.

Muoy, 15, had CHD from birth, but she just realized it early last year when a group of Chinese and Cambodian doctors under the “China-Cambodia Love Heart Journey” program visited her school in the province to screen students for the CHD.

She was sent to the Yunnan Fuwai Cardiovascular Diseases Hospital in Southwest China’s Yunnan Province for free surgery in June last year, which has completely changed her life since then.
