The Cases

The congenital heart defect surgery project was initiated due to request for help from An Giang Children's Fund. Surgery was performed at Saigon Pharmaceutical and Medical School Hospital in June 2012. Thanh Nguyen visited the children in August 2012. Their parents reported that they recovered well. All five children were in good health condition at the time of visit. The surgery cost after insurance payment was shared by An Giang Children's Fund (30%) and SAP-VN (70%).
