Visit by IF and HI |
When children with Hydrocephalus arrived here via the hospitals, they were brought in with very limited information, especially when a baby was disabled
The doctor of this Orphanage tried her best to refer all children with Hydrocephalus to the general hospital for a check up, but most of them were nominated too late for the placing of a shunt, even if the Orphanage managed to get a free shunt.
In the long term, these children will be faced with a very large head circumference which can easily cause pressure sores and head aches, while also becoming an extra burden for the personnel.
The management of this Orphanage were open for suggestions and showed their interest for further updating and possible training for their personnel, after a quick visit by Mr. Pierre Mertens (IF), Tuong Van and Huong (HI) in March 2007.
