Severely Ill Little Let Returns to Myanmar “Giving Thanks” Press Conference
Taiwan’s love reaches Myanmar! In August 2018, an 11-year-old girl, Little Let, from Myanmar with Goldenhar syndrome came to Taiwan for medical care after receiving USD$100,000 from Pou Chen Group, a Taiwanese company long-established in Myanmar. After successfully undergoing 7 months of surgical treatment, where she had correction of her visual impairments and reconstruction of her right ear, Little Let happily returned home last month and started school again.
Little Let received a lot of assistance for her overseas medical treatment. The Taiwan Christian International Holistic Care Missionary Association initially sought out this international medical aid. Collaborating with the Taiwan External Trade Development Council, China Medical University Hospital International Center, and Pou Chen Group, who donated money for medical expenses, the association found a happy ending for Little Let. These different associations and enterprises enthusiastically attended the press conference, giving Little Let the greatest blessing and encouragement and illustrating the medical miracle of love.More
