270 children under 18 years old received free heart scanning at the General Hospital of Phu Quoc and Medical Centre of An Thoi Ward. A large number of families took their children to get the free examination and consultancy from doctors about cardiovascular health.

Of the 270 children who came, doctors diagnosed 7 cases of congenital heart defects and needed heart surgeries. The VinaCapital Foundation will follow the cases of these children to support them soon in the near future.

Wishing to be able to help "Every baby will have a heart check-up at least once in their lives", The VinaCapital Foundation will continue the journey of free screening in the future./.
