South China's Guangdong Province has sent 19 medical teams to its rural area, providing medical services to local residents.

The teams, composed of 114 medical workers, will give free medical treatment to the villagers of the province's remote and poverty-stricken parts and will donate medicine and medical equipment to local medical stations.

The teams will offer training to local medical workers through lectures and demonstrations. They will also distribute pamphlets on health and sanitation knowledge to locals.

Dr. Xiao Xin from Huaqiao Hospital, attached to Jinan University, has taken part in such activities several times. "This kind of activities will, in a real sense, incarnate our work ethic of healing the sick and rescuing the dying," he said.

According to the provincial government, Guangdong will send nearly 1,000 more medical workers to the rural areas before the middle of this month.
