Hoiana Resort & Golf raises funds for disadvantaged children with congenital heart defects


Hoiana Resort & Golf has raised over VND520 million for the VinaCapital Foundation’s program that supports surgery costs for underprivileged children with congenital heart defects.

The donations were raised through the “One Heart – Thousand Beats” campaign, a partnership between Hoiana and VinaCapital Foundation (VCF). Hoiana set a fundraising goal of VND500 million (US$20,000) by December 8 toward providing lifesaving heart surgeries for 13 children.

Within 15 days of calling for donations, the campaign surpassed its goal by attracting over VND520 million, equivalent to the surgery cost of 14 hearts.

Hoiana Resort & Golf allocated VND363 million ($15,000) from its CSR budget to the fundraising campaign. The remaining amount of nearly VND160 million came from Hoiana’s executive leaders, staff members and partners. The campaign will be extended to Feb 15,2024 for more donations from the resort’s guests during holiday seasons.

On Dec. 8, Hoiana Resort & Golf officially handed over a pledge of more than VND520 million to the “Heartbeat Vietnam” program founded by VCF in the resort’s Christmas Tree Light-up Ceremony.

“Hoiana Resort & Golf is dedicated to saving the lives of underprivileged children with congenital heart defects across Vietnam. Our fundraising goals would not be possible without generous donors. I would like to sincerely thank you so much for your donations. Your kindness is greatly appreciated by the children and their families,” said Steve Wolstenholme, President & CEO of Hoiana Resort & Golf.

Founded in 2006, Heartbeat Vietnam has provided over 10,000 heart surgeries for disadvantaged children suffering from congenital heart defects nationwide.

With matching funds from provincial government organizations and insurance coverage, the cost for a donor to cover a child’s heart surgery through Heartbeat Vietnam is $1,500, one-third of the average total cost of the operation.

The program also provides the cost of pre-treatment and post-operative care for the children, including nutrition support, travel fees, health check-ups, and scholarships so they can remain in school.

There are approximately 15,000 infants born with congenital heart defects a year in Vietnam, 85% of whom will not live past their 18th birthday without timely intervention and surgery, according to the Ministry of Health. The majority of children with congenital heart defects are from poor families in rural areas.

Any support like Hoiana helps these children receive lifesaving heart surgery and opens up life-changing opportunities for their families. Studies from Heartbeat Vietnam provide data indicating that 68% of beneficiaries’ families improve economically and escape poverty as a result of healthy children.

Previously, Hoiana Resort & Golf had contributed VND300 million, equivalent to the cost of heart surgeries for 10 children, to the Scar of Life 10 held in 2022, the annual fundraising event of Heartbeat Vietnam.

This year, Hoiana Resort & Golf has carried out more than 10 CSR activities and initiatives to support the local community.

“One Heart – Thousand Beats” has been introduced alongside the “Seasonal Wonders” campaign that Hoiana Resort & Golf runs from Dec. 1, 2023, to Feb. 15, 2024, to encompass the Christmas, New Year, and Tet holidays.

Local and international travelers are invited to unwind in style on the shores of central Vietnam and immerse in holiday celebrations, all in partnership with Mercedes-Benz An Du Danang.

This festive campaign provides customers with various promotions and recreational activities, such as staycation packages to save up to 60%, and countdown firewall shows on the beachfront.
