Dear members of the Hand of Compassion Charity,

Dear friends and benefactors,

As you may or may not have heard, last July, under the Pacific Partnership Program 2012, the USNS Mercy hospital ship arrived in Nghe An province, Vietnam to provide civil humanitarian and medical aid to the local people.  Our Charity was involved in helping to arrange the transportation for some of the severely ill patients to get medical care on the ship.   One of the patients we were trying to help was Mrs. Ho Thi Canh Mung, who has had two severe heart valve defects since birth.  Unfortunately, due to some external circumstances, our effort was unsuccessful.  Recently, we have heard the news that her condition has taken the turn for the worse.  She has been hospitalized for a week now at the Cardiovascular Center at the Hue Central Hospital, and is currently waiting to schedule for the surgery.  After receiving the news, our Charity has asked a Project Coordinator in Hue to visit the hospital to find out more information.  The cost of hospital care and surgery is very high for the ordinary people in Vietnam.  It is especially difficult for those with limited income.   After some research, we found out that the cost of surgery, medication, and follow-up care for her is around 160 million VND, or the equivalent of 8000 USD.  Mrs. Ho Thi Canh Mung’s situation is so tragic because she’s very poor, with two school-aged children, whose family and relatives are powerless to help.  With the vow to help the needy and to save lives, we are mobilizing the members of the Charity to start a fundraising plan to raise money to help defray her medical costs.   Below are a few pictures that the Project Coordinator took while visiting Mrs. Ho Thi Canh Mung in the hospital, so you can see her condition. 

With compassion and our own earnest sincerity, we are calling on you, friends and benefactors, to open your heart and lend us a hand.  Your donation, whether small or large, is greatly welcome and much appreciated.  In compassion lies the world’s true strength.  Together we can help appease and share a portion of the burden and anguish that the patient and her family are going through.

100% of your donation will go to the patient to pay for the medical costs.  You can make a donation through our Charity’s PayPal account (link), or send to directly to the patient’s family through our Charity's Project Coordinator at the following address:

Le Thi Cam
12/23 Nguyen Van Sieu
Phuong Phu Hau, Hue
Cell phone:  84-126-844-7275

On behalf of the Hand of Compassion Charity, we would like to deeply thank you in advance for your merit.  May this blessing be with you soon.  We wish you happiness, peace, joy, health and success in life.

In loving kindness,

On behalf of the Charity,

Liem Huu Bui
