We were so lucky to meet Thao and her incredible friends at ConvaTec a few weeks ago who have been instrumental in helping us to support a little girl in need of some specialised medical care.
Meet Hanh. We are not sure how old Hanh is, but we think she might be quite a bit older than she looks as she has all of her teeth! She is a tiny, smiley, beautiful wee girl who has a long list of medical challenges, including having a stoma in her tummy as her bowel doesn't work properly.
Thao and her friends from ConvaTec have very generously offered to continue to donate and supply Hanh with bags and dressings to fit her stoma. This is incredibly important for Hanh's health as it will prevent infection, damage to the skin around the stoma and illness that Hanh would be at risk for if she did not have the bag.
Thao and her friends have also delivered incredible training to the nannies and nurses that care for Hanh ensure that they will know how best to take care of her and her stoma. We would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Thao and her friends who are making an ENORMOUS difference to the quality of a little girls life! We would also like to say a BIG thank you Michael Byrne who donated a great, big bag of powder and paste used when caring for stomas, which will be used to keep Hanh's stoma site clean and pain-free."
