Villagers Receive Free Dental Care

On 15-16 February 2018, EGATi Company Limited, in collaboration with iServe, Bangkok Airways and the Team Group of Thailand and the Nam Ngiep 1 Power Company conducted dental care activity ‘Hug Kaew’ for people in the villages of Hamsamkhone, Pou and Phiengta in Thathom District, Xaysomboun Province.


Free dental services including dental check-up, teeth cleaning, fillings and extractions, and how to take care of teeth were provided to the villagers by professional dentists from Thailand and Laos.   More than 400 people attended the event.  A free hair-cut and how to cut hair was also provided to those interested to be barbers.


The activity aims to improve the living conditions of the people in the Nam Ngiep 1 Hydropower Project area.  A similar eye care activity was previously also provided to villagers in other areas of the Nam Ngiep 1 Project by EGATi and its partners two years ago.

Chatchawan Sakornsin, the Minister of the Royal Thai Embassy to Lao PDR, Mr. Watchara Hemruchatanun, President of EGATi, Mr. Yoshihiro Yamabayashi, Managing Director of Nam Ngiep 1 Power Company, and Mr. Vantheva Bouakasith, representative from LHSE, the Lao government shareholder of NNP1PC.
