GX team started from scratch, and the project is starting soon , we are excited that GX can help Cambodian cataract patients regain their sight.
To celebrate the International Volunteer Day, Guangxi medical team and GX staff prepared ingredients and made a dumplings to share a meal together. Dumplings are a folk food with a long history. They are known as a traditional festive food in China which symbolize reunion. Team head Dr Xu Fan encourages the team to cook together every day while they are away from home.
