7 years in bed because of industrial accident

Tran Dinh Quyen, 31, residing at Tan My Hamlet, Ninh Xuan Commune, Ninh Hoa Town, Khanh Hoa Province, has stayed nearly 7 years confine to bed.  After an industrial accident, he has suffered spinal column injury and paraplegia. Staying in bed for a long time has severely ulcerated his skin with deep sunken sores in his buttock area.

He is now treated at Department of Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery & Burn of Khanh Hoa General Hospital.



Reportedly, the treatment of ulcers for Mr. Quyen costs at least from VND20 to VND30 million. His family is too poor to afford the expense of this treatment. 

Previously, Mr. Quyen was the main earner in his family. Since he got the accident, his wife has had to work hard to take care of him and their two little children.  She has no stable job and has to try her best to earn a living for the whole family.

Mr. Quyen’s family hopes to receive supports from benefactors and readers everywhere to assist them in this misfortune. All the supports can be sent to Khanh Hoa Newspaper office at 77 Yersin St., Nha Trang City.
