China has provided free medical treatment for 12 Mongolian children with congenital heart diseases, the Chinese Red Cross Foundation (CRCF) announced Monday.
The CRCF conducted congenital heart disease screenings in Mongolia last month, and brought 12 children to Hohhot, capital of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, for medical treatment.
The surgeries were successful and all of the children have been discharged from hospital and returned to Mongolia, according to the CRCF.
Mongolia is one beneficiary of the humanitarian aid program targeting children in Belt and Road countries.
The 12 children were the first group from Mongolia to be treated under the program, which is expected to assist 100 Mongolian children.
