China-aided project cures Cambodian kids with heart disease

Vath Van, an 11-year-old Cambodian teenager, has enjoyed his healthy life after having his congenital heart disease (CHD) remedied by Chinese doctors three months ago.

Van, a seventh-grade student at a secondary school in Kampong Cham province’s Bateay district, had suffered from CHD from birth. However, he knew nothing about that until July when a Chinese and Cambodian doctor team visited his school to screen students for the heart disease.
