Gifting patients from HCMC Tumor and Lump Hospital.

 
\r\n\r\n

At Tumor and Lump Hospital, we saw unfortunate lives at\r\nsight with excruciating pain that people suffer from. We deplored the fate of\r\nthe patients in festering mass torture, years by years. Parents from distant\r\nrural places collected little money and went to the city for their children’s\r\ntreatment. Some families have had therapy for over ten years that the strange\r\ndisease still excruciates pain, whimpers every time the weather changes. It is\r\nfortunate for those who are not sick, due to good merits and causal conditions.\r\nHowever, anyone who has ever experienced in illnesses, though mild, also been\r\nkeen on the pain from the patient, understanding and sympathizing for their\r\nfate; therefore, it has been said: “Intact leaves must cover torn leaves or\r\nzucchini’s love must protect squash”.

 On the coming International Children’s Day of 1st\r\nJune, to console some of the pain of pediatric patients’ tumor and lump, the\r\ngroup donated more than 200 gifts including milk, bread, candies and cash\r\nenvelope of 300,000 VND per each  to the relatives of children who were\r\nofficially listed by the hospital (each gift is worth 450,000 VND). Besides,\r\nthe group had compassion when witnessing babies lying for treatment in narrow\r\nrooms, under the creaking bed; there is no way to walk because of too many\r\npatients. Pitifully, some children had protrusions eyes, spindly arms; smooth\r\nheads without hair owing to many times of radiotherapy. Running out of gifts\r\nbut resting many children patients, at this time, Buddhists volunteering\r\ncollected and supported 500 thousand VND to each patient. The total value of\r\ngifts is officially 90 million VND, incurred additional 30 patients is 15\r\nmillion VND. Thus, the total amount money and gifts donated at Tumor and Lump\r\nhospital is 105 million VND. The amount was from Lien Nha Buddhist and\r\nBuddhists of Hoang Phap pagoda.
