FIVE STEPS TO
A HEALTHY HEART

  • LOTUS staff receives referrals for children with heart defects.
  • LOTUS staff conducts home visits to determine the medical and financial needs of referred children and their families.
  • LOTUS schedules exams in Hue Central Hospital and if doctors there concur, are scheduled for surgery.
  • As surgeries are scheduled, LOTUS staff are again busy seeking additional support from our partners in order to find maximine leverage of our funds.
  • Post surgery the LOTUS Open-Heart Program provides for 12 months of medical and social support.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Your donation to LOTUS of US $10, $25, $250 or more can, when leveraged with our other funding partners, ensure that a child in rural central Vietnam has access to the higihest level of quality in cardio care.

LOTUS doner partners in Viet Nam and the United States effectively underwirte the modest staff and administrative costs incurred by the Program, so that your contribution goes to directly support the patient's medical needs.
