From now on to 30 April 2019, Hong Ngoc Hospital is receiving application of Vietnamese disadvantaged children for charity surgery. The application will be collected and screen for the charity surgery hosted by Hong Ngoc General Hospital in collaboration with Facing the World (UK).

Facing the World is a UK-based charity established in 2002 with the mission of treating children from developing countries, including Vietnam, who have craniofacial defects.

Hong Ngoc General Hospital has cooperated with Facing the World’s team of specialists since 2016, successfully performing dozens of surgeries for complex craniofacial deformities.

In the program’s missions, Hong Ngoc General Hospital’s key doctor is Dr. Nguyen Nguyet Nha. She was former deputy head of Craniofacial Department at Hanoi National Hospital of Pediatrics and have studied and worked at Craniofacial Center of Changgung Menorial Hospital (Taiwan) and Paris VI Medical University (France).

Dr. Nha has cooperated with various teams of foreign doctors for charity examination and reconstructive surgery in Vietnam such as Operation Smile American surgeons, Interplast (Netherlands) to perform jaw surgery for patients in 8 Northern provinces, and Globe Care (Korea) to offer surgery at Hanoi National Hospital of Pediatrics.

As scheduled, after screening applications, Hong Ngoc General Hospital will invite children who have craniofacial and limbs defects to the hospital for direct examination. The suitable cases meeting necessary health requirements will be operated for free. All of the operations ensure to meet international standards in all aspects from facilities to surgeons.

The program’s representative shares that the charity surgery program by Facing the World is a great chance of medical cooperation, allowing local doctors to acquire knowledge and skills from international experts. The program also brings new appearance to disadvantaged children, helping them to live a normal life and confidentially integrate with the community.

After three years accompanying with Facing the World in the charity surgery program, Hong Ngoc General Hospital not only helps change the life of numerous children but open opportunity to thousands of disfigured children across the country.

To continue this successful journey, from now to 30 April 2019, with the love for children, Hong Ngoc General Hospital is receiving applications for the next mission. We do hope that this time more disfigured children would benefit from the program, getting closer to their dream of living a normal life.
