Visiting Children With Congenital Heart Defects Saved Thanks to Donation From Heo Dat MoMo

Since the Heo Dat MoMo function came into life, MoMo has created an unprecedented practice in Vietnam. Through the digital wallet, more than 15 million users can easily donate with only a small amount as much as 1,000 VND. Only after 8 months since July 2019, MoMo has supported children with congenital heart defects to receive life-changing surgeries. So far, 18 children have benefitted from their donations and this number is set to rise to 27 as more money is raised through MoMo’s app.

On the 21st February 2020, MoMo representatives and VinaCapital Foundation visited 4 children with congenital heart defects at Hoan My Cuu Long Hospital, Can Tho. The children at the hospital were either waiting for or recovering from their heart surgeries. MoMo gave the children gifts, putting a smile back on their faces.

These children are just a few of the thousands of children that Heartbeat Vietnam has been able to help since the program started in 2006. VCF’s partnership with MoMo allows the Heartbeat Vietnam program to fund heart surgeries from the thousands of children that are diagnosed with congenital heart defects. These surgeries allow the families of sick children to improve their financial status without the burden of illness.

Lieu Thanh, 8 years old, just had her heart surgery the day before the visit. Her mom is taking care of her. 

MoMo’s app allows donations to be made to The VinaCapital Foundation. By using the digital wallet, walking, answering questions as a way to take the Pig to school, share good jobs with friends or pay for services on MoMo, you can feed the pig, allowing the pig to give birth to the golden pig. This pig can then be donated to VCF. This is completely free for users and is a great incentive to use the app. MoMo also created a QR code for VinaCapital Foundation and donors can scan the QR code to donate to Heartbeat Vietnam. The code is printed on donation boxes placed in all FLG’s locations. This 2020, join MoMo and VinaCapital Foundation to continue having better health and bringing joy to more defected young hearts.
