A 41-year-old man in Nghe An Province, who is suffering from a brain haemorrhage and a victim of Agent Orange, is in need of help to treat his illness.

Nguyen Ba Cuong is the second of the three siblings. Cuong is unable to work as he is affected by the Agent Orange from his mother since birth. His body didn’t develop and at 41 years old, Cuong only weighs 5kg. In addition, as his body is mostly paralysed, only his hand and his head can move around. He has to depend on his family members for everything.

Cuong and his brother in hospital

Even though he couldn't go to school, Cuong still taught himself and is good at computers and has written hundreds of poems. His works have been published in many magazines and read via local loudspeaker.

On April 8, he suddenly had a headache and seizure and was diagnosed with a brain haemorrhage. He was admitted to Nghe An General Hospital and is still in a coma.

Ho Thi Van, Cuong's mother, said her husband died long ago, leaving her with three children.

"Two of my sons are disabled because of Agent Orange. The youngest son is luckier but his health is weak. I worked hard for all my life but now I'm helpless when my son is sick," she said.

Nguyen Ba Cuong's mother

The family depends on earning an income from their small fields, a monthly allowance of VND500,000 (USD22) for the disabled and the salary of a mechanic of Van's youngest son. After Cuong was admitted to hospital, they sold their only motorbike for VND3m and borrowed from everywhere to pay their hospital charges.

Nguyen Ba Phuong, Cuong's brother said, "He is now in Intensive Care Unit because of the blood clot in the brain. He'll be out of danger when doctors suck out the blood clot once he wakes up. We’re casual workers, we don't have stable jobs and wages. Our father died in 2004 after falling sick."
