In April, we sponsored a heart surgery for Kha Han, a 17-month-old girl from a disadvantaged family in Vietnam. She was diagnosed with tetralogy of Fallot, a condition that could have been fatal. In collaboration with Heartbeat Vietnam, we were able to bring hope and a second chance in life to Kha Han.

Tetralogy of Fallot consists of four congenital heart defects that affect normal blood flow and result in a lack of oxygen. The girl’s parents, facing financial difficulties, were devastated by her life-threatening diagnosis. Her father, who works tirelessly, is the sole breadwinner in a family of six.

Recognizing the urgency of the situation, we quickly teamed up with the Heartbeat Vietnam program to fund Kha Han’s heart surgery. The operation was a remarkable success and gave her a chance for a healthy future.

During Kha Han’s recovery at the hospital in Ho Chi Minh, our team paid her a special visit. We gifted her a toy to brighten up dull hospital days and brought essential necessities to her mother.

Now that Kha Han has been discharged from the hospital, she can begin her journey to a healthy life.

Thanks to our partner, the Heartbeat Vietnam program, and VinaCapital Foundation, the charity behind it! VinaCapital Foundation is on a mission to transform lives and create better futures for Vietnamese children and women in need. They’ve already helped over 10,000 children nationwide.
