JOG FOR THE HEART

According to statistics of Health Ministry, annually there are around 10,000 to 12,000 children with congenital heart defects in Vietnam, only around 50% of whom (6,000 children) receive timely diagnosis and treatment. By estimation, one in every 100 children born is with congenital heart defects. The annual remaining 6,000 children are not aware of this life-threatening disease. Many of them even die before any diagnosis made.  Cases without early intervention are found mostly in the poor families in the rural and mountainous areas. Costly expenses for heart operations ranging from some thousand million to hundreds of millions bear a heavy burden on poor families, which critically affects their material and spiritual life.

Four of us come from different provinces and work in different sectors:

1. Luong Thi Xuan Thu, VP Bank in Lam Dong

2. Do Vu Luu Phuong – Department of Foreign Affairs HCMC

3. Tran Thi Hong Thuy – Gourmet Tree Australia

4. Nguyen Thi Linh Giang – FE Credit

We accidentally met in a workshop and immediately connected via our shared passion in social work through raising fund to support poor children with congenital heart defects. One question was raised among us: how can we support children with congenital heart defects and their family sustainably?

We made deep research and finally, Heartbeat Vietnam of VinaCapital Foundation, a non-governmental organization in community development have made strong impression on us with their great achievement in providing pre-, during and post-intervention for children with congenital heart defects and their families. In 2007, just 5 children were supported. From 2015 onward, annually around 1,000 children have received timely intervention via Heartbeat Vietnam’s fund-raising activities from kind-hearted donors.

Therefore, we will collaborate with Heartbeat Vietnam to organize “Jog for the Heart” event, aiming at raising funds to support children with congenital heart defects in Lam Dong, a mountainous province where annually there are many children with congenital heart defects.

On occasion of Children’s International Day, we would like to invite all of interested individuals and organizations nationwide and globally to directly or indirectly raise fund with us by contributing and/ or attending the event “Jog for the heart” to spread the message: Many big hearts for small hearts. Details of the event is as below:

1. Time: Saturday morning, 25 May 2019
