No one can choose the circumstances of their birth and upbringing, nor can they choose to have a healthy heart. But every one of us has the ability to change our lives or give life-changing opportunities to those who are less fortunate.
Nay H’Buoi, a little girl from Gia Rai ethnic group living in Hdreh village (Gia Lai province), was born into this world with an undiagnosed congenital heart defect. She is one of many ethnic minority children who are growing up in poverty. The struggle to make ends meet makes it difficult for H’Bưởi’s parents to recognize the deterioration in their firstborn’s health.
Living in such disadvantages, ethnic minority children similar to H’Buoi do not have the opportunity to receive early diagnosis and are forced to live with fatigue and illness all year round due to the underlying influence of their congenital heart defects. When the condition was discovered in a severe state, the surgical fee was too much of a burden for their family, thus closing the doors to their future.
Fortunately, the VYSA Charity Book 2022 project by the Vietnamese Youth and Student Association in Japan (VYSA) has timely offered their support to repair H’Buoi’s precious heart by sponsoring her surgical fee and post-operative examination through the Heartbeat Vietnam program. After the successful surgery in early February 2023, the little girl has recovered and her now-healthy heart would allow her to have a wonderful childhood like her peers.
Join hands with us to save courageous little hearts from congenital heart defects and give them and their families opportunities to change their lives by checking this out.
