Who do we help?

Hoang Thi My Uyen

Hoang Thi My Uyen

DOB: July 13th, 2000

Address: Xa Bang, Chau Duc, Ba Ria – Vung Tau

Family situation and illness history: Uyen’s was born with a congenital helix malformation of her left ear. At birth, Uyen’s left ear was covered by a layer of skin.

Uyen has hearing difficulties and cannot hear the sounds around her clearly. When growing up and going to school, Uyen could not hear her teachers’ lectures and was often teased by her friends about her malformation. However, Uyen studied hard and was often surprised to receive merit certificates for her outstanding achievements. Uyen’s greatest desire is to have ear implant surgery to help to recover the shape of her ear and hearing ability.

FVH Otolaryngology Department doctors said that Uyen should undergo an ear implant surgery using cartilage from her rib to create an ear helix. The cost of this surgery is fairly high and Uyen’s family cannot afford it. All five members of her family live on VND 3 million per month – the wages of her father, a rubber worker.
