Điểm received a scholarship from saigonchildren since she was 7 years old. Life fell apart when her brother passed away suddenly. At that time, she was preparing for University graduation exam, and was about to give up on everything. However, she realized she was not the only person losing her loving brother. Her parents also lost their son. She thought that she could not allow herself to disappoint her parents and those from saigonchildren who had been there to support her. Điểm graduated from University on time and now has a job that she enjoys."Looking back, it was a wonderful journey. I’m grateful to have saigonchildren as my second family. I have grown up so much as a person, professionally and personally.
Since her son was 15 months old, Nhi recognized that Nghia was a bit different and soon he was diagnosed with autism. From that moment, everything became stressful. No school allowed Nghia to stay and no teacher knew a way to help him. However, Nhi never gave up. She travelled to HCMC to look for a proper care. Nhi found help and her son started to go to school but Nhi could not afford the living expenses in the big city. They went back home. Luckily at her hometown, saigonchildren started a training programme. Nhi joined and with other parents. They learned about their children behaviors and how to help their children improve attention and concentration. Nhi felt so happy to know that from now on there is people who live in her hometown and who are trained with appropriate knowledge to help her son. Nhi and Nghia are now looking forward for a brighter future.
