We are Nguyen Van Thang and Nguyen Hong Thuy, a Vietnamese couple staying in Singapore. I (N. V. Thang) currently work at SUTD University as a researcher around one and half years. I have just got married with N. H. Thuy one year ago, after that my wife had a pregnancy. She has just received Dependent Pass this August, so she came Singapore and stayed along with me. We booked airline ticket to return Vietnam on 26/11/2016 for preparing to give a birth on safe (6.5 months in pregnancy at that time) around Valentine day 14/02/2017 because we realize that the expenses for delivering a baby (at worst, premature) in Singapore is very expensive. Unfortunately, my wife was labor pain and delivered a little boy on early 11/11/2016 at KK Women & Children Hospital. Due to premature situation, baby is only 1040 gram with 26 weeks 3 days and need to be cared in a special NICU in approximate 104 days with a huge cost from 223000 SGD (ideal case) to 268000 SGD (complicated case). This cost is very far away our budget. We hope that we can transfer our baby to Vietnam for reducing expenses but doctors in KKH advised us not moving baby by airplane because it can be suffered a lot of risks such as high air pressure, vibration,... Currently, our baby is also facing some dangerous symptoms such as brain bleeding, low blood pressure, respiratory distress.

To cure for our newborn, we try our best to seek the funds from our friends and families but the medical expenses are really challenging. Hence, through internet we set up this crowdfunding with hoping to receive helps and sharing from contributors and donators all over the world to save our pitiful child. We hope that we can be supported around 40~50% from community. Currently, Im only able to approach 1/4 of this expense. Remain part, i think hospital will permit to set up an installment.

We still keep in touch and update newest status of our baby frequently through this page and also facebook.
