The Future is Looking Bright for Suong

Suong with her brother

Suong stays in a village 70km away from the city centre of Can Tho. She stays with her brother and parents in a house built using rusty metal panels on a polluted riverside.

Suong suffered from congenital cataract - this means that the lenses in her eyes were cloudy since birth. She couldn’t see clearly and struggled to read at school. She even had to retain her grade twice and may have to drop out if her grades do not improve!

Fortunately for Suong, she got her eyes operated during the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital program in Can Tho. When the Orbis Vietnam team visited her recently, they found that Suong sees things much clearer and brighter, and her performance at school has also noticeably improved. That's because she can now see clearly enough to read what’s on the blackboard!

Suong has a bright future ahead of her. With better vision, she can finish school and get a chance to work at her dream job, to earn a living and fulfil her dreams.

Thank you for helping children like Suong, and many more.

We are nearly there - this campaign is 70% funded and we are just USD13,500 away from our goal. This #givingtuesday, 27 November, will you make a contribution to better children's lives and help us win extra incentive funds to support our children's programs in Vietnam?

Stay tuned for my next e-mail with steps on how you can make your donation go further with the #givingtuesday campaign.

Till next time!

Always grateful,
Jasmine
