HCM CITY (VNS)— East Meets West Foundation and Nu Skin Enterprises Inc on Wednesday launched the Southeast Asia Children's Heart Fund to raise money for children with congenital heart disease.

The aim of the initiative is to save "2 Lives a Day" throughout Southeast Asia, the partners said.

Nu Skin has provided an initial VND1 billion (US$47,619) to the fund.

Each year, more than 50,000 children are born with congenital heart disease in Southeast Asia, with fewer than 5,000 children receiving surgery. — VNS
