Gangwon-do Province's central city, Gangneung, is located 3 hours away from Seoul by car. It is a city surrounded by Taebaeksan Mountain's veins and the blue East Sea. Its endless sea and living historic sites heal people's bodies and minds, making it a popular city among those in the world who are searching for medical tour destinations.
In this very city, Gangneung Asan Hospital and Dongin Hospital have been practicing a beautiful medical charity every year. They established medical partnership with Russia and Central Asia to invite patients without medical benefits and treat them for free. This year, they invited patients from Kazakhstan, a country in Central Asia. Two receivers were selected through the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Kazakhstan, and they arrived in Gangneung.
