Poor man struggling to survive after tragic accident
  • By Pham Oanh | | July 15, 2013 02:57 PM

Tran Duc Nuoi, 58, a poor man from Ha Tinh Province, is in the recovery room at the Hanoi-based Vietnam-Germany Hospital after a serious accident.


Nuoi suffers from paralysis in four limbs

A neck injury resulted in paralysis in all four limbs.

Nuoi needed urgent surgery that cost VND10 million (USD475.3)--money his family did not have.

After one week, in order to save Nuoi’s life, the hospital performed the emergency surgery without charge, although the bill still has to be paid at some point.

Even though he has undergone the surgery, he’s still in critical condition and still needs long-term treatment, Vu Hoang Anh, a doctor from the hospital said.

In order to borrow money for Nuoi’s treatment, his wife, Nguyen Thi Thao,  has returned to their hometown in Phuong Giai Hamlet, Ky Bac Commune for three days but so far has been unable to raise any money, reported  Nuoi’s son, Tran Duc Khanh Truong.


Nuoi’s children powerless to their father’s situation

Truong, who is studying at a vocational training school in HCM City, said, “My older brother ran away from home years ago. In addition to my studies, I do some part-time jobs but the earnings are just enough to cover my modest living costs. My two younger sisters are still studying, so we can’t do anything to help. When I was informed about my father’s accident, I borrowed a little money from my friends to catch a coach to Hanoi.”

Since Nuoi was hospitalised, his wife and children have been living on bread.

Truong added, “Sometimes my mother gets faint from hunger and I can’t stand seeing my father being ill, but I don’t know who or where to ask for help.”

He also said, "If any kind-hearted people are willing to lend me some money to pay for my father’s medical treatment I will try to work to repay the debt after graduation."
