“See Again” is a charity program founded by Penny Pham Thien Tam, a 11th-grade student in Ho Chi Minh City. This activity provided free treatment that helps poor elderly who suffer from cataract. A single cataract surgery in a private or a foreign hospital can cost up to thousands dollars. But many doctors and nurses have volunteered for See Again which dropped the cost to only 35 USD or 700.000 VND.

 

However, there are many more patients who are dealing with economic difficulties that cannot afford to pay for these surgeries. Most of them are from remote areas of the Mekong Delta. In 2018, See Again carried out more than 2,200 cataract surgeries and aiming to help 3,000 patients this year.

 

 

 

Appreciating this meaningful program, Mr. Guo Zhi Feng - President and CEO of Vietnam Media Advertising Joint Stock Company (Chicilon Media) has donated $10,000 to provide surgeries for more than 300 patients. In addition, he is also willing to be media sponsor which advertise for this program.

 

“35 USD or 700.000 VND is just a small amount for many people, but with poor cataract patients, it will change their lives. This amount can also help a revitalized father, a student to back to school or a mother can take care of her child by herself “,Mr. Guo agreed with Penny’s view.    

 

 

This is not Mr. Guo first charitable activity to support Vietnamese people in difficult circumstances. Earlier, after the 2018 flood, to help many disaster-stricken northerners overcome difficulties and stabilize their lives, Mr. Quo Zhi Feng donated 500 millions dong. "I hope that the small contributions of each individual will create a rainbow of love, bring opportunities and better lives to difficult circumstances in our society" Guo Zhi Feng emphasized.
