After 6-month pre-training and careful preparation, the medical team arrived in Sudan on October 21, 2018 and initiated 1-year medical aid mission. Adhering to the established systems, all team members intimately cooperated to showcase the spirit of ‘overcoming hardship, dedication, saving the dead and healing the wounded, and philanthropy’. They received the trust and respect from Sudanese patients and physicians with their excellent technology, enthusiasm, wisdom, hard work and painstaking spirit. Besides, team members were widely praised by the Chinese embassy in Sudan and compatriots from Chinese-funded companies.
