It was later in the day when Han and her mother decided to visit her grandparents. They rode their motorcycle and did not anticipate what was coming their way. On the road, a car hit them and threw both mother and child off their motorcycle, leaving them in critical conditions. They were brought to the nearby hospital, but many of the doctors did not get a chance to look at Han or her mother case. For several days, Han was left unevaluated, the child grew weaker, and infections sat in.
The grandparents did not have any money for Han’s surgery and went to the nearby Buddhist Monastery for help. The monks reached out to RTNCF, and after reviewing the case, one of our staff members coordinated with the appropriate people in Vietnam to bring aid to Han. Subsequently, the doctors reviewed Han case and had to expeditiously operate and amputate the lower limb of Han’s one leg. Surgery was completed and for days the medical staff monitored her for any further signs of infections. Luckily no further infections occurred and Han recuperated. Unfortunately, she lost half of one leg, and for days, she was depressed and refused to eat anything. Through the help of her grandparents, mother, and monks, Han started to eat and slowly regain her health and strength. She is now healthy and learning to cop with her situation. According to her mother, she returned to school and slowly is being herself again.
