Uncle struggles to raise blind nephews

A poor man in Kien Giang Province is in desperate need of financial support to help raise his blind twin nephews and treat his wife's asthma.


Nghia and his nephews

Pham Van Nghia, 57, is a poor man and lives by selling lottery tickets. His sister is also poor and can't afford to raise twins. After seeing her hardship, Nghia had decided to take the twins, Nguyen Cong Truong and Nguyen Phuoc Tho, to his home and raise them as he and his wife have no children.

The twins were born prematurely after only six months of pregnancy and weighed nearly 1kg. The twins overcame doctors' predictions and survived. But unfortunately, they have no corneas and will be blind for the rest of their life.

At first, their parents didn't believe the doctors and borrowed money to try to cure the boys by any means they could think of for four years. When they ran out of money, they again left the boys to Nghia to find work and repay the debts.

Nghia and his wife also spent a lot of money when the boys fell ill but they don't want to let Truong and Tho work to early and sell lotto tickets with them. He said he wanted the boys to have better jobs.

"The neighbours told us to return them to their parents," Nghia said. "But they cried and said they wanted to live with us."

Nghia couldn't bear seeing the boys cry so it was until the twins were nine years old that he was able to admit them to the school for disabled children in An Giang Province. In 2016, they boys started music lessons to become traditional musicians. Now they are 14 years.

Nghia said they were currently tight on money as the boys needed VND40,000 for a taxi motorbikes whenever they needed to go to class. They are also borrowing money to help Nghia's wife, who is suffering from worsening asthma, go to hospital.
