Celebrate Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week 2022 with VinaCapital Foundation and Heartbeat Vietnam

Every year, in addition to the joy of entering the New Year, the Heartbeat Vietnam team also looks forward to the Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week (February 7-14) to spread the message of hope and love.

According to statistics, each year in Vietnam, up to 16,000 babies are born with congenital heart defects. Half of them have critical heart problems that require timely treatment. However, the majority of these children live in rural areas, where their families struggle financially and lack access to quality healthcare.

As a program of VinaCapital Foundation, since 2006, Heartbeat Vietnam has provided life-saving heart surgeries for nearly 9,000 poor children across Vietnam, as well as free heart examination for nearly 250,000 children in remote areas who have not had the opportunity to access healthcare. The program has helped change lives and bring hope to the future of thousands of Vietnamese children and their families for more than 15 years our team has traveled all over the country.

On the occasion of Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week (February 7-14, 2022), let’s join VCF and HBVN to spread knowledge and messages about congenital heart defects to the community. Let’s each become a messenger and a bridge connecting the hearts so that more and more people know about congenital heart defects and join hands to help disadvantaged children have access to healthcare and help their little brave hearts come alive again.
