VTV.vn - In the nine years since its inception, the Supportive Fund for Cancer Patients – Bright Future has mobilised and spent over VND50 billion (US$2.17 million) to support more than 28,000 poor cancer patients nationwide.

The information was released during a conference to review the fund’s operations and pay tribute to its donors in Hanoi on December 25.

In addition, the fund has been supporting thousands of patients with cancer medicines, while carrying out cancer screening for early detection for over 72,000 people. It has also organised cancer prevention and control forums, improved the capacity of nearly 1,000 doctors, and implemented a series of meaningful programmes for cancer patients.

In 2020 alone, the Bright Future fund assisted and presented gifts to 987 poor cancer patients with a total value of nearly VND3.5 billion.

He encouraged the fund to build on the positive results attained to overcome difficulties and continue to be a reliable address and a big source of motivation helping poor cancer patients to access treatment and move towards a brighter future.

Speaking at the conference, President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Central Committee Tran Thanh Man praised the humanitarian activities and noble acts of the fund and donors over the past nine years. He called on businesses, organisations and individuals, both at home and overseas, to continue joining hands with the Party, the State, the VFF and the Bright Future fund in reducing poverty and ensuring social security, especially through providing better care for poor cancer patients.
