AIDS patients find hope in free home

There is a mountainous area in the border district of Bu Gia Map in Binh Phuoc province called “The end of life”. And here stands a medical station promoting hope for AIDS patients.


Founded in 2006, the hospital is the final home for thousands of patients.

Nguyen Van Trung is a special patient who has lived here since the early days of the hospital. When he first arrived, Trung’s health was in crisis, with an immune system that was largely destroyed. With wholehearted care from doctors and nurses, he miraculously came back from the brink of death.

There is no divide between health workers and patients at the hospital, only friendship and intimacy. The “Mercy family” is what patients call the hospital, where they share joy and sorrow and overcome the darkest days of their lives./.
