Thank You to MoMo for Bringing Healthy Hearts to The Children!
Over the past 5 months, 27 children have been receiving and will receive support for congenital heart surgery, re-examination costs and scholarships for healthy hearts and a bright future. Thousands of gold coins, millions of footsteps, as well as the love of MoMo users have brought these miraculous gifts to the little and brave warriors.
Van Tay, a cute Tay ethnic boy, was one of the first children to be raised money for heart surgery with MoMo. Visiting him again after his surgery, we were so moved by his wonderful transformation from a thin, fragile, sickening child into a much healthier and glowing boy recovering after his heart surgery. Tay still needed to go to the hospital for follow-ups and regular monitoring in the future, but he could not hide his shining smile when Heartbeat Vietnam visited him. When returning home in Dak Lak, Van Tay will be able to go to school regularly and have fun with his peers.

The brave warrior Le Thi Truc wrote a beautiful story with her courage, innocence, and her bright smile. Diagnosed with congenital heart defects when she was 4 months old at the district hospital, Truc then underwent two operations at 5 and 8 months of age. All the surgery and travel expenses were supported by the generosity of the benevolent because her family financial situation could not afford such enormous costs. Currently, her mother and Truc are staying at the house of their great-grandmother. Truc’s mother has to take care of her daughter on her own. Recently, the 5-year-old girl underwent a third operation thanks to contributions from the community through the MoMo Wallet.
