VinaCapital Foundation & Meditronic Handover Emergency Response Gifts to Children with CHD and Families affected by COVID-19
Today, representatives of VinaCapital Foundation and Meditronic came to University Medical Center HCMC to present emergency relief gifts to children with congenital heart defects and families affected by Covid-19, which were donated through our “Together We Save Children’s Hearts” campaign.
To reduce the burden under COVID-19’s impacts, VinaCapital Foundation is making an effort to accompany children with congenital heart defects to support them to be fully cared for before and after surgery, ensuring their recovery as well as bringing better living conditions for disadvantaged families.
We visited baby Le Thi Truc and her mother. Truc was born in 2015 in Nghe An at only 1.9kg, with hand defects and was diagnosed with congenital heart defects at 1 month old. She underwent 3 surgeries, the last time on November 22, 2019 which was supported by Heartbeat Vietnam and had a stable recovery. But as the baby’s congenital heart defect is complex, requiring multiple surgeries, she is expected to undergo a fourth operation in July 2020. Truc and his mother now live in a shelter home in Bien Hoa City, Dong Nai. The mother helps the parish, or receives candies to do processing, making a couple of thousands VND a day. It is the soeurs at the parish who help cover the cost of Truc’s re-examination & milk, supporting Truc and her mother to overcome this difficult period.
We are still calling for more donations to our “Together We Save Children’s Hearts” Campaign to urgently respond to the needs of children with congenital heart defects and their families affected by COVID-19 pandemic. Please donate NOW because your help is needed more than ever.
