Empowering the Future by Caring About Tomorrow
Our partnered charity Heartbeat Vietnam is dedicated to providing treatment to youth with congenital heart defects. With their efforts and funding they have provided treatment to over 6,000 children across Vietnam. At just $1,200 USD per surgery we are giving 5% of our profits to heartbeat Vietnam to further support the future of Vietnam.
Heartbeat has their community in mind, they are providing and supporting Outreach Clinics so Healthcare providers, screeners and health services can reach the sick, especially to those who are disadvantaged and living in remote areas, isolated from the most basic services. Since 2007, Outreach Clinics for Cardiac Care have examined and offered free diagnoses for 80505 children at 147 districts in 44 provinces including 46772 cardiac ultrasounds, 2639 post-operative check-ups and counseling.
The Road to Health
Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) cause economic hardships insurmontable to many families in rural areas of Vietnam. Parents are devastated financially as they struggle to care for their children. In response, VinaCapital Foundation established the Continuing Care Program for Heartbeat Vietnam children and their families. This program protects a child designated at-risk in the crucial year after surgery by providing one year of post-operative medical care, nutritional support, and money for school fees to the child and family. To be eligible for the Continuing Care Program, participants must meet the following criteria:
- The child received funding from Heartbeat Vietnam for heart surgery.
- The child’s family has a poverty certificate attesting to the need for additional support.
- The HBVN assessment of the family indicates the child is at-risk and resources are not available for proper nutrition and post op care.
