Hung Van Hoe

Hung lives with his wife and two children in Saigon, where they run a tailor shop out of their home. He makes two to three dollars per day and uses this money to take care of himself and his family. He lost his limb in 2016 and it took him a year to undergo the rehabilitation process and begin to regain mobility. His new above-the-knee prosthetic device, which was provided by Penta, allows him to smoothly maneuver around the tailoring machinery, and complete his work with the efficiency he had before his accident.

Now able to walk on his new device, Hung says he hopes to his aid his family in their weekly charity work. His two children participate in charity programs for the homeless and bring food, which Hung’s wife cooks, to shelters around the city.
