Nguyen Viet Thang, 10, and Nguyen Phuong Thuy, 6, who are the children of Ma Thuy Liem in On Luong Commune, Phu Luong District. At present, they both can’t speak as they have brain atrophy. They also often experience epileptic fits.
Their grandmother Ma Thi Thoa said that Liem had left for Hanoi to act as a seasonal worker, leaving the children to stay with their grandmother. Meanwhile, their father also leaves home from early morning to work.
The two disabled children are now living with their grandmother
According to Thoa, Thang was born with multiple abnormalities and without an anus. His testicles were inside his belly. He experienced three operations to create an anus and remove his testicles from his belly. When Thang started to learn how to stand, he suddenly faced convulsive fits. After being hospitalised in Hanoi, the boy was diagnosed with brain atrophy and intellectual disability. Since then, Thang has been taken to many hospitals in Hanoi for treatment. However, over the past three months, his family has failed to borrow money, so he has been left at home for self-treatment. Liem’s second child Nguyen Phuong Thuy faced the same Thang’s disease. Now, she is six years old but she can’t speak. Liem has suffered from depression, but she has tried to overcome this. Liem and her husband have done different kinds of jobs to earn money. Phan Trung Hieu, head of Na Pang Village, said that Liem’s family is very poor. The two ailing children are a great burden for the family. He hoped that donors could join hands to support them.
