The doctors had treated 83,804 patients, completed 2,162 surgical operations, and helped provide relief to many suffering from severe diseases for a number of years.The video titled A Log on Life is a true record of their daily work, and also the record of their faith in and respect for life. Medicine is not restricted by national boundaries, and doctors share a common sympathy for patients.
