The Chinese Association of Botswana (CACB) together with the Chinese Medical Team that arrived in the country recently, organised a medical care day for children and caretakers at SOS Children’s Village in Tlokweng on Saturday.

The medical team tested the children and their caretakers for different ailments in eyes, ears, height, weight, teeth and other diseases.

“This is a very happy day for us as health is a very important component for every child’s growth. We want to see our children healthy. Our children come from different social and health background so this initiative will help us identify sickness before it is too late,” he said.
