Seoul National University Hospital: an unforgettable new life from Korea
Kwok Heung（Quốc Hưng）was diagnosed with “Tetralogy of Fallot” when he was six months old. Tetralogy of Fallot is a congenital heart disease that results in various malformations, and it was not treatable by health professionals because necessary treatment skills were lacking in Vietnam back then. But just like a miracle, his family was able to get in touch with the Sunny Korea Welfare Foundation, which was offering free surgeries for children with heart diseases in developing countries, so Kwok Heung finally received a surgery from Professor Jae Gun Kwak, a doctor at Sejong Hospital (Bucheon) then, on May 6, 2009. At that time, the parents of Kwok Heung said: “We need to build a center to take care of ill children to repay what we have received in Korea.” Eight years later, they built a center composed of two buildings, which they have also been operating, for 200 children and 20 teachers in Da Nang, Vietnam. Recently, Kwok Heung’s family was invited to an event of the Sunny Korea Welfare Foundation, and they went to see Professor Kwak first, the person who changed the fate of their child and his family, and cried for joy.
