We provide state-of-the-art, safe and free treatment for children with vascular
birth defects, in hope of bettering the lives of children in Vietnam and other countries in Asia.
WHAT WE DO
Disfiguring vascular anomalies and birthmarks are a major health issue for the children of many countries which historically lack the means of effective and early intervention.
The main concerns:
- No specialized medical care for children with vascular birth defects
- Underdeveloped diagnostic and treatment modalities
- Continuing use of radiation therapy that carries risk of severe scarring and cancer
- Cost of treatment is prohibitive to many families
Over the past 5 years, we have provided free medical evaluation as well as safe and effective treatment for over 4,800 children up to 5 years of age, with emphasis on caring for underserved children.
Recently, we expanded our capacity to provide free medical care for children up to 12 years of age. We are also expanding our clinical operation to include skin wound care.
As part of our cooperation with Vietnam-based care providers, we work to enhance the knowledge base and technical skills of local physicians in other areas, including laser medicine, surgery, interventional radiology, pediatric dermatology and pathology.
We provide free evaluation and treatment to children up to 12 years old. We are extending our service to patients in other regions in Vietnam and Asia.
We sponsor medical missions in which US physicians travel to Vietnam to treat and share their expertise. We bring Vietnamese physicians to the US for knowledge sharing and training.
