$1 a day goes a long way!
Hanh is a four year old girl diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. She lives at home with her father, mother and sister. Her father does minimal work at home using a sewing machine as he has a limp leg. Her mother works selling fish. Her income is approximately 40 000 VND ($2) a day. The family have an elderly relative who looks after Hanh occasionally. Apart from her they have no other family support. They are very poor and struggle to meet daily needs. Hanh is usually left at home lying on a wooden bed for most of the day. She urinates and defecates on the bed.
Hanh loves to attend Dien Tho Rehabilitation centre which runs four days a week, however her family cannot afford transportation costs ($1 a day). Daily therapy is vital to improve Hanh's overall function. For $1 per visit ($4 a week), you can assist Hanh to receive the therapy she desperately needs.
A young father.
Doan is a young 32 years old man. His father died many years ago from liver disease. His mother has asthma. He has 2 children (one is 4 years old and the other is 2 years old). He had a good job as a builder. He saved money and intended to open a coffee shop at home so his wife could sell coffee and look after their children.
When they started to build the shop 4 years ago, Doan discovered that he had end stage renal impairment requiring dialysis or kidney replacement. As surgery costs about 500.000.000 VND ($25.000), they couldn’t afford this. So, for the past 4 years, Doan has had dialysis and his family have had to borrow a lot of money from relative and bank to pay for this treatment.
As it was too expensive and far away from home to have treatment in hospital, Doan dialises himself at home. It costs at least 2.000.000 VND/month for medical treatment and supplies. Currently this is just what his wife earns as a tailor . However it is not enough to cover Doan’s treatment as well as run the house. If Doan is able to continue dialysis at home he may be albe to extend his life for seven more years and share it with his two young girls.
