It was our pleasure and honor to support these wonderful dedicated health care professionals.

The Masters' students travel to Thailand to complete their 2 year International Level Master of Nursing degree. All of the students awarded a scholarship have a profound desire to help and work in their communities in VietNam and to improve the standard of the nursing profession.

Below is a thank you letter from Bao - one of the students who received a scholarship from Lifestart Foundation.

After reading it, I hope you will agree with me what a worthy recipient Bao is. Bao graduated from Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy and he is currently working at Hue Central Hospital. While the number of male Nurses make up a small percentage in the Vietnamese health sector, Bao is an exception and he has nurtured a strong passion for this career path since he was in high school. With the much-needed funds from Lifestart Foundation, he is now provided with better learning conditions to realise his dream of studying masterโ€™s course abroad to expand his horizons and more importantly to redefine the way people think about the Nursing sector.

We hope you enjoy reading Bao's thank-you letter:

Dear Everyone at Lifestart Foundation,

My name is Dang Quoc Bao. I am married with two children and live with my family at my mother-in-law's house.

I was very excited, happy, proud, and emotional when receiving the scholarship from Lifestart Foundation. It is the reason why I am sending this letter to you. My wife and I are working to support my two children and my mother. Although my mother had another family and had subsequently had three more daughters with her second husband, we all face difficult situations. My mother didnโ€™t raise me, but she gave me the chance to exist in this life, so I have to take responsibility for her now. As you know, โ€œthe biggest guilt of a person is to not be responsible for his/her parentsโ€. In spite of my low income, I have to share a part of it to support her.

Regarding my current family, my mother-in-law is getting older, and she often gets sick when the weather changes. I love her like my mother. My wife and I and my children will look after her when she gets sick. My wife is an officer at Thua Thien Hue Department of Health Care. My son is in year 6 Secondary school. He appreciates his parentsโ€™ busy work so he goes to school by himself. Besides studying at school, he also helps us to take care of his grandma and look after his younger sister. My daughter is in year 2 in Primary school. She is also like her brother and can go to school by herself. Besides studying, she also helps do some chores in my house and plays with her brother.

I have been working at the Heart Emergency Department of Hue Central Hospital since 2016. My daily duty is to take care of the patients. Besides that, I have a part-time job in my free time, taking care of patients at their homes to get more income to improve my life. Even though I have limited time, I am aware that I have to study to improve my knowledge to serve in the community. I know that it will be very difficult, but I believe that I can do it.

I am doing a Masters in Nursing course in Thailand and though I know that my English is not as good as my classmates, I still follow that course with willingness and determination. I think โ€œwe will not become a very good student in 1 or 2 days, the important thing is that we donโ€™t give upโ€. Professors may possibly have observed how I work as they seem to understand me, appreciate me and share lots of information with me.

I remember when I was a year 12 student, my teacher said that: โ€œyour dream will control your lifeโ€. At that time, my friend told me that: โ€œif you dream a lot it will make your life difficultโ€. I replied that: โ€œYouโ€™re wrong! A small dream is similar to a small lifeโ€. When I was 18 years old, I dreamed of changing one thing in my life. And I went on my dreaming path, made my dream come true and it is also the reason why I am following this course. After I graduate with a Masters, I plan to continue studying nursing at Ph.D. level. My dream is that I will upgrade the nursing role in Viet Nam to a new level.

I was so excited when I heard that I will receive Lifestart Foundation scholarship with my classmates. I was very grateful to Ms. Karen, Ms. Nhung, and Ms. Phuong for choosing me. I also show my deep gratitude to sponsors who extract a part of their income to contribute to Lifestart Foundation. After receiving the scholarship, I was aware that I have to be more responsible for the community. When I got the backpack from Lifestart Foundation, I donated it again to my son and told him: โ€œDonโ€™t give up your dream, if your dream is big, there will be someone who believes in you. Please help people who are poorer than you and me tooโ€. This scholarship means a lot to me. I will spend a lot of time on my study and join an English class to improve my communication.

Once again, I would like to thank Ms. Karen, Ms. Nhung, and Ms. Phuong for listening to my presentation. Thanks to you and your staff, I had the opportunity to receive a Lifestart Foundation education scholarship.

I wish you all good health and lots of energy.

Sincerely,
Dang Quoc Bao

Lifestart Foundation has committed a total of $๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ,๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ which was raised during our 30-day fundraising campaign for emergency relief. Aid continues to be provided to hundreds of families impacted by the devastating floods, typhoons, and landslides in October and November 2020.

Lifestart Foundation team has organized Emergency Relief Distribution Days for those affected. Now that the immediate emergency has passed, it is important to provide these families with long-term aid to help them start over and rebuild their lives.

The families we were able to help have students in our Lifestart Foundation education scholarship project, so they are families that we know and also know that the impact of the typhoon and flood was real and genuine.

Pictured in this post is our Lifestart Foundation education scholarship student Hoaโ€™s family in Quang Tri province. Hoa is currently a 4th year General Medicine student at Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy. She comes from a large family of 9 people, including her parents, her elder sister, her elder brother, two younger brothers, two younger sisters, and Hoa.

With the severe weather conditions in Central Vietnam, their house does not provide safe shelter for the family. Due to the old roof, it had water pouring in through gaping holes during the rainy season. After the historic floods and typhoon hit Central Vietnam in 2020, it caused much damage to their house and the children were put in dangerous living conditions. This has made their lives all the more difficult and it would be extremely difficult for them to have their house repaired without aid. Much needed financial aid to help them repair their house was provided by Lifestart Foundation and the generous donors. The donated funds have enabled them to replace their old flimsy roof with more secure and new tiles. Images of the new roof are shown in this post.

Once again, we would like to express our sincere and profound gratitude to our amazing donors.

We have never doubted the profound importance of our Lifestart Foundation Medical Scholarships and our significant investment in the dedicated young people that we support. Over the years, Lifestart Foundation has provided 60 Medical Scholarships to outstanding students in Central Vietnam. All of our recipients demonstrate academic excellence and are from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Loan is a fourth-year General Medicine student at Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy.

Loan was born and raised in a small village in Hiep Duc, Quang Nam. There are 5 people in her family: her parents, her elder brother, her younger brother, and Loan. Her father is a builderโ€™s assistant while her mother works as a rice farmer. She also grows vegetables and raises pigs but the income from selling vegetables and pigs is only enough to buy food for her family. In recent years, her father has suffered from back pain and sciatica and sometimes is unable to walk. The cost of his medical treatment has been a huge pressure on the family and he is the main breadwinner. His unstable work has meant that the familyโ€™s total income is reduced and as a result, her family has had to borrow money to support their living expenses and school fees for their children. Loan herself has suffered from Basedowโ€™s disease for a long time and this is another added financial pressure to pay for her monthly medication.

Despite her difficult situation, Loan is determined to study diligently in order to break the poverty cycle for her family. Loan is a brilliant student and always puts 100% effort into her studies. She had an outstanding 4.0 study average out of a possible 4 in her second year at university, achieving the well-deserved title of excellent student! In addition to attending lectures and clinical practice, Loan also spends an average of 4 hours per day self-studying on weekdays and 8 hours per day self-studying on weekends. Besides studying, Loan also actively takes part in extra-curricular activities. She is a member of the Blue Blouse volunteer club and Paediatrics club at university.

After receiving her Lifetstart Foundation Scholarship Loan's life has changed for the better. The scholarship covers all tuition, books, rent, and food costs and also a laptop which will help her focus completely on her studies to achieve her desired goals. Her elder brother has now found employment which helps him to have enough income to cover his own expenses. As a consequence an enormous burden is lifted from Loanโ€™s shoulders and that of her families too.

Loan shared that it is her father who she admires the most. He is a good role model for her family. He is a good husband, a dedicated father, and a dutiful son to his parents. He has sacrificed all his life to his family without complaint. Despite coming from a disadvantaged background, he always encourages his children to strive harder in order to have a good future. This has helped Loan to overcome a lot of difficulties in her life to realize her long-held and cherished dream of becoming a doctor, which will not only benefit herself and her family but more importantly the wider community.

At present, Loan is interested in Paediatrics. She would like to study more about this field in the future in order to become a skilled Paediatrician.

We warmly welcome Loan into the Lifestart Foundation family. Stay tuned for more to come in future posts as we watch her progress with great interest.

Scholarships cover all tuition fees, books, uniforms, and the all-important extra classes. Our Year 12 Central Vietnam students need to leave home to attend University for between 4 - 6 years depending on their chosen degree, so funding for accommodation and food needs to be provided too.
Scholarships are awarded to academically gifted students from very poor families.

We have never doubted the profound importance of our Lifestart Foundation Medical Scholarships and our significant investment in the dedicated young people that we support. Over the years, Lifestart Foundation has provided 60 Medical Scholarships to outstanding students in Central Vietnam. All of our recipients demonstrate academic excellence and are from disadvantaged backgrounds.  Loan is a fourth-year General Medicine student at Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy.  Loan was born and raised in a small village in Hiep Duc, Quang Nam. There are 5 people in her family: her parents, her elder brother, her younger brother, and Loan. Her father is a builderโ€™s assistant while her mother works as a rice farmer. She also grows vegetables and raises pigs but the income from selling vegetables and pigs is only enough to buy food for her family. In recent years, her father has suffered from back pain and sciatica and sometimes is unable to walk. The cost of his medical treatment has been a huge pressure on the family and he is the main breadwinner. His unstable work has meant that the familyโ€™s total income is reduced and as a result, her family has had to borrow money to support their living expenses and school fees for their children. Loan herself has suffered from Basedowโ€™s disease for a long time and this is another added financial pressure to pay for her monthly medication.  Despite her difficult situation, Loan is determined to study diligently in order to break the poverty cycle for her family. Loan is a brilliant student and always puts 100% effort into her studies. She had an outstanding 4.0 study average out of a possible 4 in her second year at university, achieving the well-deserved title of excellent student! In addition to attending lectures and clinical practice, Loan also spends an average of 4 hours per day self-studying on weekdays and 8 hours per day self-studying on weekends. Besides studying, Loan also actively takes part in extra-curricular activities. She is a member of the Blue Blouse volunteer club and Paediatrics club at university.  After receiving her Lifetstart Foundation Scholarship Loans life has changed for the better. The scholarship covers all tuition, books, rent, and food costs and also a laptop which will help her focus completely on her studies to achieve her desired goals. Her elder brother has now found employment which helps him to have enough income to cover his own expenses. As a consequence an enormous burden is lifted from Loanโ€™s shoulders and that of her families too.  Loan shared that it is her father who she admires the most. He is a good role model for her family. He is a good husband, a dedicated father, and a dutiful son to his parents. He has sacrificed all his life to his family without complaint. Despite coming from a disadvantaged background, he always encourages his children to strive harder in order to have a good future. This has helped Loan to overcome a lot of difficulties in her life to realize her long-held and cherished dream of becoming a doctor, which will not only benefit herself and her family but more importantly the wider community.  At present, Loan is interested in Paediatrics. She would like to study more about this field in the future in order to become a skilled Paediatrician.  We warmly welcome Loan into the Lifestart Foundation family. Stay tuned for more to come in future posts as we watch her progress with great interest.
