In 2009, I took Huong for an MRI scan & found she only had half a brain lobe and would be prone to hydrocephalus. Earlier this year the VVN donated a Medtronic shunt for her hydrocephalus operation, which our medical partners ADM Vietnam then conducted in Jan 2013.
We would like to thank ~ Go Vap orphanage ( Trung Tâm Nuôi Dưỡng Bảo Trợ Trẻ Em Gò Vấp) for their love & care towards Huong & her physiotherapy treatment, Medtronic Ltd, ADM Vietnam, their wonderful team & Minh Chau Ton & their donors and of course our awesome VVN volunteers & donors!
Together we CAN make a difference!
Much love & appreciation,
