On December 1, 2022, Scar of Life 10, a nationwide charity fundraising program for disadvantaged children with congenital heart defects, will take place at Landmark 81, Ho Chi Minh City. This 10th-year milestone marks the return of this meaningful Scar of Life effort after a 2-year delay due to the pandemic.
Aside from raising awareness and funds for children’s heart operations, the event held by Actress – Director – Producer Ngo Thanh Van, will produce Scar of Life 10 to honor and cherish the devoted benefactors who have supported her and the children for the past 10 years. “There are so many children who need our help. Alone, I am too small to save all the children. But I am committed to this long difficult challenge. It is only with your help that we are able to do miracles. Without the “heroes” who have joined hands with me over the past ten-year journey these little lives would have likely been lost,” she shared.
Among the large number of “Heart Heroes” who have accompanied the Scar of Life since the very first days are: Mr. Don Lam – CEO and Founding partner of VinaCapital; Mrs. Julie Lam – Founder of Mia Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts and Mama Mia Food & Beverage Groups; Mr. Pham Tan Nghia – President and Founder of Vietnam USA Society (VUS) & VIAS Invest Group; Madam Nguyen Thi Mai Thanh – Chairwoman of the Board of REE Corporation; Madam Duong Minh – Duong Minh Language School; Businesswoman Lan Luu; Mrs. Robin King Austin – Founder & Creative Director, Austin Home Interiors; Mrs. Bich Chau – Chairwoman, Austin Home Interiors; Ms. Phuong Anh – Sales Director Qhome, The exclusive distributor of Lladró in Vietnam; Singer Dam Vinh Hung and many other kind hearts, from businesses to individuals, celebrities, media agencies and the help of the community.
To spread the charity fund’s value further and provide more children with heart operations, Ngo Thanh Van will introduce the “New Generation of Scar of Life” at the press conference on November 14 at the Continental Saigon Hotel. The program’s new Ambassadors will be young artists who have a positive influence and are passionate about charity work, including singer Jun Pham, singer Isaac, composer Hua Kim Tuyen, Miss Universe Vietnam 2017 H’Hen Nie, singer Toc Tien, actress Ninh Duong Lan Ngoc, social activist Helly Tong, businessman Huy Tran, goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung, and athlete Vu Phuong Thanh. “Each of them has a loving heart that accompanies, shares, and spreads the meaningful values that Scar of Life always wishes to bring to disadvantaged children with congenital heart defects in Vietnam”, says Ms. Van.
Through Scar of Life, Heartbeat Vietnam Ambassador Ngo Thanh Van and many other generous hearts have successfully raised 2,571,450 USD, supporting 2,317 poor children with congenital heart defects. Scar of Life is organized annually starting in 2011. The charity event was postponed for 2 years due to the Covid pandemic, but the actress and her husband businessman Huy Tran continued to donate and support life-saving heart operations for children as individual donors.
