This year, we had something special to celebrate on Christmas: Hau, our 14-month-old heart patient, returned home on Christmas Eve 2014 after a successful operation.
His father, Mr. Dong, is the eldest son in a family of five siblings, whose mother became seriously ill. Although Dong and his wife work very hard, their income is unreliable and they struggle to bring up their 2 children. Matters turned for the worse when Hau became sick. In 2013, Mr Dong wrote to the Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs in Quang Nam to ask for help.
The request was forwarded to us, and we wanted to see what we could do to help. After discussions with Mr. Dong’s family and the doctors, Hau was sent to Hue Central Hospital in October 2014 and we sponsored the operation fee.
Hopefully from now on, Hau’s bright face will be alight with happiness!
