Dantri/DTiNews has transferred over VND133m (USD5,700) in readers' support to help a poor orphan in Ha Nam Province.


Tran Dinh Thang (middle) and his maternal grandparents

8-year-old Tran Dinh Thang lives with his maternal grandparents after losing both parents to an accident. After giving birth to Thang, his mother suffered from chronic kidney failure. They had to work hard to raise Thang and pay for his mother's kidney dialysis.

Unfortunately, both Thang's parents died in a traffic accident on April 27.

"When his parents' ashes were brought to the hometown, Thang cried every night, asking for his mother. Then we all cried until morning," said Le Thi Tai, Thang's grandmother.

Thang's grandparents are having to take care of an ill sister with diabetes and their 80-year-old mother.

Dantri readers have donated a total VND133,520,000 to Thang. His grandparents were moved to tears upon receiving the donation.

"We really appreciate everyone's love for Thang. This is a huge amount of money and such a precious gift for our family. We've never dreamt of having such money. We'll try to raise him well. We'll deposit the money to pay for his school tuition," Tai said.
