A 15 YEAR OLD GIRL’S HEART SURGERY
Le My Thuan is a 15-year-old girl with a heart condition since birth. Her state worsened this year and may have been fatal if her condition had been left untreated; she required surgical attention as soon as possible. The total fee for the operation was 95.000.000 VND and members of her family managed to collect 50.000.000 VND; the ABC International School donated the remaining sum for the surgery to the amount of 45.000.000VND.
This was My Thuan’s third heart surgery and it was a success. A few days after the operation Jee Yoon and Jay (Year 13) paid My Thuan a visit bringing gifts. Below is a quote by who paid Le My Thuan a visit ‘’The school’s donation not only alleviates the family’s financial pressure, but it also gives My Thuan strength to triumph against the disorder. Through this experience, we strive to make positive changes for the future so that we can live in a harmonic and supportive society.’’
CAMBODIAN BOY’S SURGERY
We had a very successful charity campaign last year working hand in hand with the Saigon children’s hospital (BV Nhi Đồng). The Saigon children’s hospital presented us with a very unfortunate case of Sok Ly Hua who is a Cambodian boy in need of immediate surgical attention. When we first met with the boy he was suffering from a broken leg and severe liver failure which lead to blood poisoning. A few very generous third party donators has already contributed to Sok Ly Hua case however his family was still 55 million VND short. On 29/06/2017 we took the initiative to pay off the rest of Sok Ly Hua’s surgical fee of 55 million VND. The operation has been a success and now Sok Ly Hua is able to return to a healthy normal life.
LIFE SUPPORT MACHINES
The Saigon children’s hospital has a shortage of life support machines especially during peak dengue fever season. The hospitals suffered some fatalities during peak dengue season because not all children will have access to these life support equipment. We have donated over 103 million VND worth of life support equipment to the hospital, now having multiple brand new life support stations available the Saigon children’s hospital will now be able to accommodate more children.
The hospital was kind enough to provide us with a large list of patients who has very limited disposable income and are struggling to get by everyday therefore we visited each patients and handed each of them a gift bag. During our visit to the hospital we provided 32 million VND worth of Gifts for 300 child patients.
