Who do we help?

Nguyen Thanh Hung

Nguyen Thanh Hung

DOB: 15/09/2007

Address: Village 3, Hoa Thuan Commune, Buon Ma Thuot, Dak Lak Province

Family circumstances and history of illness:

Hung’s parents are farmers, so do not have enough money to pay for his hand surgery. Hung was born with the congenital deformity syndactyly, a condition in which two or more digits are fused together, and had difficulty performing daily tasks. When he went to kindergarten, he was often teased by his friends and he felt unhappy.

In Nov 2011, Children of Vietnam Charitable Fund facilitated Hung’s consultation and surgery with the French expert hand surgeon Dr. Stephane Guero to separate two fingers in his left hand. In November 2012, during Dr. Guero’s annual working trip to FV Hospital, Children of Vietnam Charitable Fund continued to support Hung to undergo a surgery to separate the fingers on his right hand to help restore his hand function and shape. His operation was carried out successfully on 22/11/2012.
