629,769 USD Has Been Raised in Gala Night Scar of Life 9 to Support 527 Heart Surgeries for Children With Congenital Heart Defects

The charity auction Scar of Life 9 on November 30th, 2019 was the most successful in the history of Heartbeat Vietnam for that past 9 years with Ambassador Ngo Thanh Van. 527 children will be saved from the fund of 629,769 USD (approx. 14.5 billion VND) through the live and silent auction of over 70 items as well as direct donations at the event.

Emotional outburst of Ngo Thanh Van

We also send our deepest gratitude to Ms. Ngo Thanh Van – Ambassador of Heartbeat Vietnam. Thank you for being fierce, strong and trustful with our organization and the program Scar of Life, and more importantly, with the mission to save children with congenital heart defects throughout Vietnam. Her sincerity is the greatest inspiration for other loving hearts to follow and support this wonderful journey.

The enthusiastic and compassionate participation of the sponsors and guests that night brought an atmosphere of love and sharing for children with congenital heart defects who are looking forward to their helping arms. Sincerely thank all the sponsors of the program for their generous work on the 9th Scar of Life.

Thanks to Director Jun Pham and his crew for his short film debut. A lighthearted, lively and hopeful “Paper Airplane” has contributed to raising awareness of the community not only about congenital heart defects but also about the urgency that these small fragile hearts need to be helped. The film really motivated the unstoppable donations from the donors to “Give Love to Bring better Life to the children” during the gala night.

Finally, to the entire staff and volunteers of The VinaCapital Foundation, Heartbeat Vietnam and Studio 68, they are day and night warriors whose works are to benefit the children who always need help to have a healthy heart. The success of the Scars of Life night is thanks to their hard work, diligence, and strong cooperation. Those tireless efforts deserve recognition and respect. Thanks, everyone!

Spread the great news and the message: Give Love to Bring better Life to the children!
