1 year ago

In May, we celebrated Tuyet Mai’s 8th birthday, marking a significant milestone in her remarkable story. Born with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), Mai’s intellectual abilities have flourished, despite the limitations imposed by her condition. Her mother, Thanh Huong, is deeply moved by her daughter’s progress, finding strength and hope in their shared journey.

Mai’s early life was marked by adversity, as her father left, leaving her and her mother in poverty. However, their lives took a turn for the better when they became part of the Hope System of Care in 2021. Through this program, Mai has received invaluable support that has transformed her life.

One crucial aspect of COV’s program is the scholarship awarded to Mai at the start of each school year, granting her access to education and the opportunity to pursue her studies. Additionally, she has been provided with a wheelchair, enhancing her mobility and fostering a sense of independence. Regular health check-ups are also included, ensuring that her overall well-being is prioritized.

Despite her physical challenges, Mai’s determination to learn and grow remains unwavering. She actively engages in various classes aimed at enhancing her skills and knowledge. These include a tutoring class, an English class, and a drawing class. Considering her need for rest and avoiding prolonged sitting, each session lasts one hour.

Mai’s dedication, coupled with the support she receives from the Hope System of Care, has played a vital role in her development and pursuit of education. Her story serves as a powerful reminder of the significance of providing opportunities and support for children with disabilities to unleash their full potential.

Mai’s journey embodies resilience and determination, proving that with the right support and unwavering spirit, no challenge is impossible to overcome. Her story inspires us all to break barriers, embrace education, and create inclusive environments that empower every child to thrive.
