People from any walk of life can need some compassionate intervention at one time or another. When your family is poor, when you have a child with a disability, and when there are limited services available for that child, your need may be greater than ever. Statistics show that parents of a child with a disability can experience depression, isolation, and hopelessness, and that such parents have a greater tendency to divorce, or even to commit suicide. We aim to support our families in the care of their child, to help them with medical care and the choices that surround their child, to listen to them when they want to talk, and our compassionate centre manager, Ms Do Le Thi Quyen, and social worker, Pham Thi Nhat, are there to help when things sometimes get too difficult.
