Quang Ngai, Vietnam-Liliana Vazquez, Interplast Communications Technology Coordinator.Tho is 22-years-old. He stood out from the others in the room, not because of his age or his burn contracture, but because of his long black hair. Tho was 14-years-old when he fell into an open cooking fire while trying to boil water for his family. Today, he works at a prawn farm in a different district from Quang Ngai. However, due to the upcoming Vietnamese New Year, he has been in town visiting family when he heard about our team’s arrival. After a careful evaluation, the team decided to schedule Tho for surgery to release his neck contracture.
