Khabarovsk Children Continue Treatment in Sejong General Hospital in South Korean City of Bucheon
Mayor of Khabarovsk Mr. Sokolov and Vice-Mayor of Bucheon Mr. You-myun Song.
More than sixty children with complex cardiac disorders from Khabarovsk have been operated for sixteen years. Special treatment is provided with the support of a charitable fund of Bucheon. Doctors from Sejong General Hospital come to Khabarovsk every year to perform diagnosis and check small Khabarovsk citizens who are recommended to have operative surgery.
A great contribution to the progress of the partnership has been made by the President of the hospital Park Young Kwang. His merits were awarded in 2009 when he was given an Honorable Citizen of Khabarovsk title. Mr. Park Young Kwang is going to take part in the celebrating events dedicated to 160-year anniversary of Khabarovsk. The mayor of Khabarovsk expressed the gratitude to the doctors from Sejong General Hospital from the part of the parents whose children have been treated in the South Korean hospital. He also highlighted that the cooperation between our cities is important but not the only.
“We continue cooperation in the sphere of economy, businessmen from the Republic of Korea invest in the construction of social facilities in our city. We have sing and dance groups exchange projects. Our citizens come to the concerts of your singers and artist with great interest”, Alexander Sokolov said. A signed document about the cooperation prolongs earlier agreements between Khabarovsk and Bucheon.
