Three of our sixth form students went along to Van Thanh Park to appear on a HTV program about VinaCapital’s Heartbeat Vietnam Foundation. The student-led community programme supported Heartbeat Vietnam, which funds life-saving heart operations for the most financially disadvantaged children.The documentary was shown on HTV9 at 9am on the 23rd February. View it below!
After completing their community project we asked our students for feedback on how they felt it went. As a group they thought it was a wonderful experience and on reflection they made the following observations:-
“Going to the hospital was really meaningful, to see those kids and keep them company and making them smile we think made a difference. The hospital visit was very worthwhile and constructive. We learnt a lot from talking to the children and appreciated the efforts of the organization.”
form students involved in Heartbeat Vietnam have raised awareness and helped in Vina Capital’s objectives “Have a heart. Give a heart”.
