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 8th Scar of Life.
Thanks to Director Jun Pham and his crew for his short film debut. A lighthearted, lively and hopeful “A Lucky Clover” has contributed to raise 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 Luck, Gain Love” during the gala night.
