Hao (8) and his mother live with his grandparents. In addition to farming a small plot of land in Luc Nam, Hao’s mother also works at a wood factory in their village. She has a goiter. Her health is not good, and she is often sick, yet she’s the only one in the family bringing in an income to cover their living expenses and her own medical expenses. The family doesn’t have a lot but they have each other and high hopes for the future.
Hao studies hard and does well in school. He wants to become a doctor so he can treat his mother’s illness.
Thanks to our generous donors, Hao will be able to start school this year will all the required supplies and be one step closer to his dream.
