Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Red Cross Society (VRC) on July 5 handed over 80 million VND (3,494 USD) as a donation for the cost of a pacemaker replacement surgery provided by the International WeLoveU Foundation to a girl undertaking treatment in the National Children's Hospital.

Addressing the ceremony, Luong Thi Hong Thuy, head of the VRC’s Department of External Relations and Development said that the amount will cover the cost of the surgery for Ha Nguyen Quynh Chi, a patient suffering a complicated heart disease from a needy family in Thanh Tri district of Hanoi.

Chi’s father, Ha Manh Hung, said that the gift is of great help for his daughter and family in this hard time. He thanked the VRC and International WeLoveU Foundation for the support.

According to Dr Nguyen Thanh Hai, head of the department for examination and diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases at the National Children's Hospital, each day the hospital receives many children from families who cannot afford treatment fees.

He thanked the VRC for supporting the hospital over the years, and called on donors to give needy patients a helping hand.

For his part, Jin Hyun Ok, General Secretary of the International WeLoveU Foundation in Vietnam said that the foundation will continue to join hands with the VRC in relief activities in Vietnam in the future./.
