We can brighten up their childhood

5-year-old girl Tran Ngan Chau, exchanges bracelets with Rhiannon, one of the UK students visiting Can Tho Hospital under Orbis Student Journalism Internship with ACS international schools.

Chau is an orphan taken care by the Buu Tri temple, Can Tho City. Orbis Team met Tran Van Anh, 21 years old, the eldest sister of the 60 orphans, who was sent to look after Chau by the master. According to Anh, Chau was accidentally stabbed in the eye by a pencil while colouring, one of her favourite pastimes.

Chau is having her right eye treated by a doctor from the Hospital’s Children Friendly Eye Department, supported by Orbis Vietnam. Very often, children get injured especially when they’re playing. The work of Orbis in Vietnam has vastly improved the access for children like Chau to good eye treatment, thanks to all your support.

We’d like to share a piece of good news! The Orbis Flying Eye Hospital is going to be in Hue, Vietnam from 19 August to 6 September 2019, and there will be an opening ceremony on 21 August 2019. The Flying Eye Hospital’s visit to Hue concludes the 5-year project aiming to improve eye care services for children across the central region. While in Hue, the aircraft will launch a 3-week training course for medical personnel along with about 200 screenings and 100 surgeries onboard the plane and in partner hospitals.
