Ms. Happy, not so happy, but healthy
Ms. Happy, not so happy, but healthy

Amazing partners!  We thank you.   Can you imagine, one hundred and sixty-seven families than you for giving their children a new chance at life?  Yep, yes, indeed, 167 children have received sponsorship from people just like you.   We at MEDRIX are thankful, humbled, and grateful for your partnership. 

Now, today we have 10 more children who need life saving heart surgery.  You can be a partner Make your mark toward 177 children.  It costs about $500 - $700 to change a child’s life forever.  Do you have to give the whole amount?  Nope, you can contribute any amount you feel is appropriate, it is up to you.  

This is how it works:

  • Very needy families whose children require lifesaving heart surgery are identified by medical heart specialists
  • The pre-surgery clinical and personal support documents are gathered by the Medical Centers MEDRIX works with in Vietnam… and the medical center requests sponsorship for the child’s surgery and recovery
  • The children are checked in the hospital
  • Surgery is completed by pediatric cardiac surgeons who work daily children who have heart abnormalities.  
  • The limited insurance available is applied and
  • MEDRIX donors assist in supporting the needed surgeries. 
  • You as a donor are receipted for you donations. 
  • The money does not go to the child’s family, it goes directly for the child’s surgery and recovery days in ICU or CCU. 
  • After the recovery period the child returns home with their parents to start a new healthier life!

That’s it!   Thank you for your donation, the parents of the kids thank you and the children will have a long life and hear the story about how generous people supported their heart surgery. 

You are a hero!   MEDRIX thanks you and the families are forever grateful for this new opportunity for their child to have a normal life.

Thanks to you our donors we've been able to continue sponsorships even in the Covid- 19 pandemic for children who need life-saving heart surgery!  The families of these children are filled with gratitude and thankfulness for this blessing.   Three of our recent children are now home and gaining strength from their life-saving surgery.  And we have just received a request from the pediatric hospital to sponsor two more children.  You, our friends and donors make LIFE possible for these children and give hope to their families even in this pandemic time.   We are truly blessed.   All your donation for children's heart surgery goes directly to support their specific surgery and medical expenses! 

One father wrote in his thank you to our donors.    "I am the father of N. T. T.  and my family is so thankful to receive the scholarship from MEDRIX.  My daughter is stable now and ready for discharge.  Our deepest thank you to MEDRIX donors and hope that there will be more children who suffer from congenital heart defects will also receive the support like my daughter." 

Again, we at MEDRIX  thank you!

The Covid pandemic may be decreasing in the USA, and in Europe, but in many places globally the pandemic is still causing havoc.  This is  particularly true in developing countries such as Vietnam.  And although Covid is still on the forefront of global thinking, Ms Huyen is thinking of other things these days. 

She is thinking about her precious newborn son, Khoi.  He was born in a remote village in Central Vietnam.   Little Khoi was recently diagnosed with a very severe heart condition. Emergency surgery was needed.  So in the few days after his short life began little Khoi entered the hospital for life-saving heart surgery.   And, that's exactly what happened.  The surgery saved his life.  Yeah!! 

He’ll need additional surgery in the future, but for now he is getting enough oxygen to sustain his life until he grows more and is strong enough for the next surgery. 

The emergency is over, and they went home today.   He’s pretty tired, and so are mom and dad.   But they all will breath easier for awhile. 

Thank you for supporting Khoi and other children who face severe needs even as the pandemic continues to affect many.

Litttle "Sang" our Shining Star!
Litttle "Sang" our Shining Star!

A new little shining star is here!   Baby Boy Sang (meaning "Shining") was born just seven months  ago during this time of the global pandemic.   And what a sweet gift he is to his family.   However, our shining star has had some difficulties in his young life that surpass the pandemic.   He has a heart defect that needs a life saving heart surgery repair.   

Unfortunately his family cannot afford his life saving surgery. Both is mother and father work hard as farmers,   The hospital where he will have his surgery approached MEDRIX to ask if our donors will consider sporsoning little baby Sang's surgery!   We said  'Yes'!  You can help us in this venture of life!   

Through donors like you MEDIX has been able to sponsor 137 children for life saving heart surgeries.   Little Sang will be grateful and so will his parents.   Thank you!
