(BGO) – Though Nguyen Thi Giao was born in 1987 as a normal girl in Cao Thuong town, Tan Yen district, Bac Giang Province, her body was deformed with the crooked back after a serious fever when she was 8 years old. For 25 years, Giao has dreamed of having her health checked to stand upright.
When Giao was suffered from the disease, her family was so poor. Her parents took her to hospital for 2 year treatment without any remission. After that, she lives together with the disease, poor health and travel difficulties.

Later, several incidents occurred to the family. Her father got serious illness. Her older brother sent his child to them after the divorce. The poor family becomes more and more miserable.
Striving to conquer the faith, Giao asked her parents to allow her to follow garment career. In the first days, her hand was hit to blood by the needle several time while the body was hurt when sitting for long time with weak health condition.
However, Giao still took great effort in 6 consecutive months to graduate the course. Then her mother borrowed money to buy Giao an old sewing machine. On the good day, Giao asked her mother to take her to the corner of the road to repair the clothes for people.
Each day, Giao can earn dozens of thousand of VND to support the family to make a living. The poor family is still miserable so her wish to be treated at the central hospital is a dream.
Giao expects someday she can be treated in Hanoi after watching some similar cases on TV who recover with proper treatment. When her father was ill, she wishes to have much money to take him to hospital.
The Chairwoman of the Red Cross Society in Tan Yen district Giap Thi Hien shared: “Giao’s case is very miserable. Now the whole family lives on her little monthly allowance and the small amount he mother earns by selling vegetables”.
Last year, a doctor delegation in Hanoi visited the locality and provided free examination to Giao then said she should go to central hospital to assess her condition to know the hope for surgery which seems to exceed her condition.
She now really needs the support from the community and kind hearted people to realize her dream of standing upright for one time. Any support should be sent to Nguyen Thi Giao in Dong residential group, Cao Thuong town, Tan Yen district or account No. 43110001002161 at Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (Telephone number 0359190998).
