Battling congenital lymphedema since childhood, Nguyen Thi Loan from Vietnam is writing a new chapter in her life. With the financial support of a Taiwan firm operating in the Southeast Asian country, Loan traveled to Taiwan for a series of complex surgeries saving her leg from amputation and giving her a second chance in life.
Not only does Taiwan have the most advanced National Health Insurance system, in the world, it is creating millions of true stories reflecting a selfless contribution to boosting global health. This has been achieved over the past 50 years through advanced medical technology and love. Many people discovered Taiwan while seeking medical treatment. Helping Loan is akin to helping all those like her in the world while safeguarding fundamental human rights. Taiwan can help!
The film is based on a true story. Special thanks to Loan, her parents and Taiwan’s China Medical University Hospital.
