Hong Ngoc Hospital cooperated with Facing the World to offer life-changing surgery to poor children



From 22nd to 29th April 2017, Hong Ngoc General Hospital has cooperated with Facing the World Charity to perform successful operations for 12 cases of disadvantaged children with malformations.

The charity surgery program hosted by Hong Ngoc Hospital and Facing the World Charity (UK) has started in the morning 22nd April with the participation of the hospital’s leaders, the team of British leading experts, and families of children who have birth defects. This is the second time that Hong Ngoc General Hospital collaborates with Facing the World Charity to provide free surgery to Vietnamese disfigured children with financial difficulties.

After the screening and careful examination, the doctors select 12 cases among 30 ones to be operated. Most of the registered cases are from poor families living different provinces such as Tuyen Quang, Ha Giang, Phu Tho, Bac Ninh, Nam Dinh, Ho Chi Minh City, and more. The most common deformities include craniofacial defects, ear and eye malformations which make parents’ face deformed, leading to difficulties in daily routine.

By 29th April 2017, the UK experts and Dr. Nguyen Nguyet Nha from Hong Ngoc General Hospital have successfully operated for all 12 selected cases. The first re-examination shows that all patients are quickly recovering after the surgery. Both of their physical and mental health are good. It’s seen that the surgery this time has significantly improved their appearance and make it easier for the patients to live a normal life.

With profound humanity, the charity surgery program has helped numerous cases of deformities to find back joy and faith in life. We hope that Hong Ngoc General Hospital and Facing the World Charity would offer many more life-changing to poor children with birth defects, helping them to be more optimistic and confident in life.
