The Cambodian Red Cross provided medicine and other medical equipment to three health centres in Oddar Meanchey province on November 5. They will be used to treat local people free of charge.

Men Neary Sopheak, first deputy secretary-general of the CRC, said that she and her colleagues brought five kinds of medicines and four kinds of medical equipment to Kokmon health centre in Banteay Ampil district, Samrong health centre in Samrong district and Chongkal health centre in Chongkal district.

Each of the health centres received two cases of amox, a case of paracetamol, a case of aluminium hydroxide, two cases of pulmoserum dexane and pulmoserum adulte, along with other necessary medical equipment.

CRC said the medicines were donated by a France-based drug company called Bailly-Creat Laboratory, while the medical equipment was donated by generous members of the public in Cambodia.

“The participation of front line workers, our white-clothed soldiers, and forces from multiple sectors made Cambodia successfully able to reopen socio-economic activities in all sectors after the pandemic,” she said.

She urged people in those communes to continue to care about their health and she hoped that the medicines and medical equipment would help them in their time of need.
