The programme was led by Uncle Cuoi and Sister Hang Nga, bringing the colourful fairy-tale atmosphere to not only the children, but to everyone in attendance. The performances of lion dance, magician, and puzzles on the story of the Mid-Autumn Festival brought the children to screams of laughter and built in their knowledge for the traditional national festival.

Besides, before the event, Uncle Cuoi and Ms Hang Nga of FV also visited bearing gifts from the hospital’s Board of Directors that were presented to all our paediatric patients. The children were very happy to meet both of the fairy characters who came into their hospital room to give gifts and talk to them. “The children do not have the opportunity to enjoy the Mid-Autumn Festival as usual, so I am very grateful to the FV team to organise this heartfelt event”, a female parent of the patient shared.

Through events like this one, FV Hospital wishes to bring play for children and create spaces for family bonding. Thereby, we can help children not only have fun, laughter and health, but also preserve the most important traditions of Vietnam that continue to nurture their dreams.
