I’d like to introduce you to Phạm Trọng Nghĩa. He’s a devoted husband and father of two small children. He is also in what is called end stage renal disease, meaning he needs dialysis three times a week for three to four hours each time. Unfortunately, in his home country of Vietnam, he must pay for his own dialysis treatments.
He has the ability to earn money by providing transportation for others via motorbike, but his motorbike is too old and isn’t eligible to be used on the road professionally. Bottom line: he needs a newer motorbike to use for work which is why I’m setting up this fundraiser for him. I am also a dialysis patient. There is one significant difference between our current situations. That difference is that I’m fortunate enough to live in a country where dialysis is covered by Medicare.
I’ve set the goal at $2500, which is about the price of a new motorbike. I’ve also set funding to go beyond the goal with any additional money raised to go towards dialysis costs. Phạm Trọng just wants an opportunity to earn money for his treatments and to provide for his family while living in a place where for those without wealth, becoming ill can quickly lead to destitution. Please help me spare this family from such an outcome.
