“Heart disease is considered a disease of the rich. Poor families do not dare to dream of providing medical care for their children, because they do not have the money to pay for the medical services and operations. Viettel's program "Operation healthy heart" is also derived from this thought. We want to give the children a new heart, a new life for them to live, and have them firmly enter life. This is also expressed philosophical activity "Mounting the production and business activities with the activities of humanitarian and social" Viettel ".

"I like working with Viettel because you guys do charity with a sincere attitude, in the true sense of the word 'charity, not for profit. In addition, the financial revenue and expenditure are clear and transparent. The third is a very dynamic way to handle the situation. Besides providing finance, Viettel also has a network of employees nationwide, from mountainous to coastal areas, urban to rural areas. This system is very helpful in determining family circumstances, assisting in handling administrative procedures; so that the children can be put into the program as soon as possible.”
