Do Minh Tam in Hanoi is fighting against meningitis after his mother abandoned him and his father was imprisoned.

Due to his illness, Tam can't walk, so his grandparents have to put him on a make-shift stroller.

Tam's grandmother, Nguyen Thi Luyen, said he was a healthy baby at birth. When he was five years old, he had a fever but everyone probably thought that it was only a normal fever and tried to treat him at home. However, one week later, he was admitted to hospital and was diagnosed with meningitis.

Tam's father was sentenced to seven years of imprisonment for involving for drug trafficking, so the burden has fallen on the shoulders of his grandparents.

 

Tam and his grandparents

Do Le Hung, head of Hoang Trung Village said, "His mother left when he was only a few months old. His grandparents earn a living from their garden and set up a small kiosk to sell tea and snacks for travellers for some money."

Doctors said Tam's condition might get better if he was admitted to hospital but his grandparents can't find the money for such long-term treatment.

"If we had money, we'd spend it all for Tam's treatment. We’re just an old couple that can get by with this small kiosk. We can take care of him no matter what hardship waiting ahead," Tam's grandfather, Do Van Binh, said.
