Although Vietnam has made significant progress in terms of medical treatment and standards of care, hospitals remain overcrowded and facilities are out-dated. Despite additional Governmental funding the cost of treatment in Vietnam is extremely prohibitive and children would not ordinarily visit a doctor unless there was an underlying illness or injury. Even then this would mean an additional financial burden that their families could ill afford.
The Foundation, through our medical assistance programme, provide sick and underprivileged children and their families with high quality paediatric consultancy, treatment and social support free of charge. This life saving service remains unique to Ho Chi Minh.
In addition to this we are always grateful for the support provided by medical colleagues outside of the foundation such as Hoan My Medical Corporation.
As one of Vietnam’s largest providers of private medical care with international- standard medical equipment and practices, Hoan My offered our children a medical service usually reserved for private medical centre customers. We are extremely grateful to Hoan My for donating their time and equipment for the health screens.
