Dantri/DTiNews readers have donated VND1.3 billion (USD55,084) for a poor man in the southern province of Long An who is taking care of his ailing child.

The donation came after an article about the condition of Ngo Van Thong in Can Giuoc District was published in the newspaper.


Thong and his daughter

In September last year, Thong’s wife left home without saying a word. His daughter Nhi suffered from a sudden seizure during Lunar New Year. Doctors at a local hospital in Hanoi said that she suffers from cerebral palsy. Thong immediately took her daughter to the HCM City Hospital for Tropical Diseases.

The girl’s condition quickly worsened, causing her respiratory failure. She was given endotracheal intubation. After the three-week treatment, her health improved and discharged from hospital.

Thong used VND200 million from donations to support poor patients at the HCM City Hospital for Tropical Diseases. He will also build a small house.

The man expressed his deep thanks for the support.
