VinaCapital’s Visit to City Children’s Hospital
On 27 May 2020, Mr. Brook Taylor, Chief Operating Officer, VinaCapital Fund Management Co. Ltd came to City Children’s Hospital to visit Di Tuong – one of the children with congenital heart defects who have been supported through our “Together We Save Children’s Hearts” campaign.
Di Tuong is a 1-year-old boy who suffers from single ventricular heart. He is the second son of a very poor family in Vinh Long province. The family has four members living in a charitable house. The father’s income of VND3 million/month is the only source to raise the whole family. The boy was discovered to have a single ventricular heart at 2-months of age, and he has suffered from sickness until his recent surgery. Today’s donation is supporting him to have follow-up tests after the surgery.
“I am proud that the VinaCapital Foundation can play a part in saving this boy’s life and helping his family through this difficult period. I want to tell the parents not to lose hope – the recovery process takes time – but they should know that they are not alone. The VinaCapital Foundation and other NGOs are on this journey with them. Today, nearly 8,000 children have had life-saving surgeries through VCF, and their families have received assistance and support for follow on care as well as other purposes. Family support is a critical component of the treatment and recovery process. I hope more organizations and individuals will partner with VCF in the future to help more children nationwide.” shared Mr. Brook Taylor.
