An auction gala will be held on May 27, with the attendance of around 600 supporters including Vietnamese artists and businesspeople, to raise money for the Heartbeat Vietnam Fund to help children with cardiovascular diseases.

The program also includes activities, such as “1,000 photos of mothers and their children” campaign, “Story of mother”, and a project of a film titled “10 steps” telling about a boy with congenital cardiac disease.

The “Scar of Life ″ program has helped save more than 1,000 children with cardiovascular diseases so far over the past 5 years.
