Dantri/DTiNews readers have donated VND100m to a little girl in Quang Ninh Province who might have lost one eye to glaucoma.


One-year-old Tran Thuy Chi has glaucoma

The representatives of Dantri and the authorities in Bac Nghia Ward, Dong Hoi City, visited and transferred VND107,740,000 (USD4,600) to one-year-old Tran Thuy Chi.

Chi is the second child of Tran Ngoc Lam and Tran Thi Thuy Linh. She was diagnosed with congenital glaucoma and has gone through several operations. She already had an operation just 15 days after being born. In order to save Chi, her parents have sold their house for VND260m (USD11,100) and borrowed VND150m to go to Singapore.

The treatment on Chi's left eye was not successful but her right eye has improved. They have placed their hope on the next operation. According to Chi's parents, VND600m (USD25,600) have run out so they returned to Vietnam to borrow more money.

"We are really moved to receive your help. We want to thank everyone for your love and concerns towards Chi. Your support is what keeps our hope up. I want to protect her eyes no matter how hard it is," Chi's mother, Tran Thi Thuy Linh, said.

On May 27, Chi and her parents arrived in HCM City to prepare for another trip to Singapore.
