Bring love to Vietnam “Hyosung Smile Expedition“

From November 13th to 17th, Hyosung dispatched ‘Smile Expedition’, its overseas medical service corps to the Long Tho borough of Nhon Trach District, Dong Nai, Vietnam as a joint effort with Korea Food for the Hungry International (KFHI, a global relief organization), to provide complementary medical service to over 1,800 local residences.

Facilitated by Hyosung Dong Nai Co., Ltd., a total number of 21 doctors consist of pediatricians, internists, surgeons, physicians, gynecologists, dentists and oriental medicine doctors from Korea and 2 local ophthalmologists joined the mission and over 100 members of Hyosung Vietnam volunteered to provide translation and guiding assistance for a functional medical service.

Along with the medical service, Smile Expedition visited to regional elementary schools to provide basic medical check-ups, ophthalmologic and dental inspections for 600 students. In this years event, the Smile Expedition provided school supply packages to students who receive the medical service, all attached with supportive messages gathered through the social media event “My Friend Hyosung”. Dong-a Pencil Co., joined the cause by supplying school supplies at a convenient price.

Hyosung has expanded the treatment disciplines and medical service areas each year so that more people can receive a high-quality medical service. Fron 2014, Hyosung brought hihg-risk patients to Korea for intensive care and funded all medical expenses, while providing glasses to people with low vision after adding ophthalmologic service in since 2016. Hyosung also provides pregnancy and childbirth education, once limited to employees, to college juniors and seniors who are expecting to enter the society.

Hyosung’s Smile Expedition provides medical service and prevention of diseases through education to local vietnamese who are prone to such medical benefits due to lack of facility and economic detriments, and embodies the true meaning of social contribution of overseas workplaces. From its first mission in 2011, Smile Expedition is holding this medical service for 7 years in Dong Nai, Vietnam, where the largest global production camp of spandex and tire cord, both the main products of Hyosung, resides.

Meanwhile, Hyosung donated its 5th library to a local elementary school in Vietnam back in June, while donating a kindergarten with the Export-Iimport Bank of Korea to fulfill its social obligations to Vietnam.
