22- year- old young man Lo Van Nguyen came from a poor countryside in Nghe An-Vietnam. He is suffering from End Stage Renal Disease, and he is in need of KIDNEY REPLACEMENT SURGERY.

Nguyen always feels there is something wrong with his health but when he came to hospital to do medical examination, the result was always fine. One day, Nguyen could not breath and collapsed, he was taken to the hospital and was diagnosed with type 3 Chronic Kidney Disease. Therefore, it has been 3 years since Nguyen has been graduated from high school, unlike friends at his age who can actively live their life and have a whole future ahead, he is permanently lying in bed everyday waiting for dialysis schedule.To have money for medical treatment, Nguyen's family sold everything that could be sold and being in debt of SGD 3600. His parents have already left the village and moved to big cities to earn money.

Nguyen is now being treated at Ba Lan's hospital in Vinh city, Nghe An province, Vietnam. Every week, the fee for his treatment is up to USD 65. His mom is working as a dish washing staff with the earning rate of USD 100 a month, and his dad is working as a laborer in another city of Vietnam with unstable income. The family is struggling with Nguyen's current hemodialysis fee

At the END STAGE of RENAL DISEASE, Hemodialysis is barely enough to maintain his life for much longer, he needs to have his kidney replaced, and his dad is willing to give his to his son. Unfortunately, the cost for kidney replacement surgery is up to USD 12000, which is impossible for the family to handle

People in Nguyen's hometown has been trying their best to help, but the area is also too poor and undeveloped that they are only able to support very little amount. After 2 weeks of his neighbors’ call for support, Nguyen has received USD 230 which is still too far from enough for his important surgery.

Nguyen has a strong desire to live as any other human beings, and at his age, he has a long life waiting ahead. His dream is to open a small shop and taking care of his parents after all the sacrifice they have done for him.
