6 years of GX Foundation spreading Chinese kindness from Hong Kong

In response to the spirit of “mutual sharing” under the Belt and Road Initiative, GX Foundation was established six years ago, committing itself to providing medical and public health humanitarian aid to countries along the Belt and Road, as well as fostering people-to-people connectivity between countries.

In September 2022, our first medical humanitarian aid program, the Cataract Blindness Elimination Program, was launched in Laos, followed by Cambodia, Djibouti, Mauritania, and Senegal. To date, we have completed over 10,000 free cataract surgeries worldwide.

Reaching the milestone of 10,000 cases did not come easy. It is the fruit of our team’s hard work in the field, along with many heartwarming patient stories. Many patients, upon having their vision restored post-operation, started dancing for joy, kissing and hugging our colleagues and medical team. One patient even named his grandsons after our colleagues to thank GX for their help.

During the launch of the “Cataract Blindness Elimination Program”, GX also noticed the high risk of dengue fever in its project countries and thus, started preparing for and promoting the “Program for the Protection against Dengue Fever”. This January, Timor-Leste became GX Foundation’s inaugural country for the launch of a program targeting vector-borne diseases. It is also the Foundation’s sixth project country. The “Program for the Protection against Dengue Fever” in Honduras and along the Boten-Vientiane Railway will be launched soon, gradually expanding the service areas of GX.

“People-to-people connectivity” is never just a slogan to us. The work of GX Foundation was officially recognized at the Third Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation as a pragmatic achievement of the “Belt and Road” “People-to-People Connectivity” Initiative.

GX would like to thank its colleagues, programme partners, governments and Ministries of Health of the project countries, the National Health Commission and provincial medical teams. It also would not have been possible without the support and help from all Chinese enterprises, making the work of the Foundation smoother.

In the future, we will continue our mission and spread the spirit of “mutual sharing” to more countries along the Belt and Road. We are committed to leveraging our strengths to provide humanitarian assistance to more locals and boost the development in the field of medical and public health worldwide.

May GX Foundation continue to flourish and spread the kindness of the Chinese worldwide, contributing towards building a community with a shared future for mankind!

Return of the seventh Guangxi medical team cohort aiding Cambodia Patients silently leave mangoes as farewell gift to doctors

Recently, the seventh cohort of the Guangxi medical team aiding Cambodia successfully completed their medical mission and returned home safely. Before the medical team left, the patients left a heart-warming gift for them.

Mangoes are currently in season in Cambodia and the trees outside the hospital are covered with big and sweet mangoes. Some patients silently collected the ripe mangoes and placed them in the doctors’ bicycle baskets without leaving a word. It wasn't until the medical team was about to leave that they discovered the mangoes.

Although their actions were simple, it came from the heart, and the doctors felt the sincerity and genuine feelings of the Cambodian patients.

The departure of the medical team coincides with the Cambodian New Year. Therefore, on this special occasion, members of the Foundation, medical team members and patients jointly recorded a New Year video to show their friendship towards each other.

Dr. SHEN Nian, the leader of this medical team, expressed before his departure, "I am very happy to have the opportunity to come to Cambodia with the team to show our love. During my time in Cambodia, the solidarity of my colleagues and the help of the Foundation facilitated the smooth running of this mission."

The seventh cohort of the Guangxi medical team aiding Cambodia has completed 403 operations in 23 operation days, bringing light of hope to countless patients. The eighth cohort of the program will be launched in late May, hoping to restore the vision of more Cambodian patients.

Since the launch of the program in Cambodia in December 2022, 3,597 surgeries have been completed.

METCs on the way to help more cataract patients

GX Foundation’s Mobile Eye Treatment Centres (METC) travel to different places in the project countries to perform free cataract surgeries for patients.

Currently, the METCs in two countries are being relocated to new project sites in preparation to help more local patients.

In order to accommodate patients in the more remote areas of Nouakchott, the METC has been relocated from Grand National Hospital of Mauritania (Centre Hospitalier National) to China-Mauritania Friendship Hospital (Hôpital de l’Amitié), a 30-minute drive away. The GX team is preparing for the arrival of the Heilongjiang provincial medical team on April 20.

Since the launch of the “Cataract Blindness Elimination Program” in Mauritania in October 2023, 3809 consultations and 960 operations have been conducted. GX is about to launch a new cohort in Mauritania to help more local patients and train more local medical professionals.

At the same time, the METC in Luang Prabang was also successfully relocated to 106 Military Hospital, the new project site in Champasak in southern Laos, after three days and two nights passing through rugged mountain roads.

In late April, free screenings and cataract surgeries will be offered to patients in southern Laos, bringing light of hope to the local people there.

Since September 2022, GX Foundation has completed more than 3,400 free cataract surgeries in Vientiane and Luang Prabang, helping more than 2,800 patients see again.
