Many of you know that Good Samaritan Medical Dental Ministry (bka GSMDM) is an organization near and dear to me. It's been a significant part of my life for the past five years and, although we get by each year, I would like to see this organization grow to new heights. We have been working on different projects to reach a larger population throughout Vietnam but this doesn't come without a cost.
The annual Summer Mission is our most costly operation in the organization, and this is only made possible by generous donations from our family and friends. If it is within your means, please consider donating to GSMDM.
Here are some examples of how impactful your donation is for our Summer Mission patients:
- Cost of open heart surgery for a child with congenital heart defects (done in Ha Noi) - $2,000-2,500 for open heart surgeries for children with congenital heart defects (done in Ha Noi). In the US the average is $165,000.
Other surgeries are performed by our surgeons and this amount covers the hospital costs, not our time or supplies:
- Cleft lips $200, (US $12,000)
- Neck mass removal $300 (US $12,000)
- Cataracts $150-200 (US $3500)

And I know there's an option for Anonymous donations, but I would love if you put your name so I can thank you personally. Thank you!! <3
