At first, many considered Tonga Phuoc Fuka to be crazy - even his own wife, thanks to which, in fact, everything started. And then people reached out to his house on the outskirts of Nha Trang - confused crying girls, and notifications of remittances and letters of thanks began to fall into the mailbox.
Today, Tonga nobody else thinks crazy. He is called the "father of Vietnam." For 15 years, this man adopted 100 children who were threatened with death before birth.
Abortion is common in Vietnam. Most often mothers get rid of future girls - despite the fact that in Vietnam it is forbidden to find out the sex of the child using ultrasound. But both doctors and patients find a way to circumvent the law. The doctor may, for example, tell the patient that the baby is "very much like a mother." This means: there will be a girl, and then, more often than not, there will be no one ...
In 2001, the Vietnamese Tong Phuok Fuk came to the hospital with his pregnant wife. Then he noticed the door, which periodically entered pregnant women. And leaving the room, wiping away tears that glittered in his eyes. When Tonga reached the meaning of what was happening, there was no limit to his outrage, and the man decided to act ... “I will help those who find it difficult. I do not know how, but I will definitely. We will come up with something together. Just make them live! ”
Tong did not understand how you could not give your child a chance to be born and not even bury him humanly. For his own money, the man bought a small piece of land to bury unborn children from this clinic. After receiving permission, Tong embarked on his mission ...
How Tonga succeeded - and succeeds - in convincing hospital staff to give him so-called “abortion material” remains a mystery. Family expenses, of course, increased. Tong worked as a construction contractor, there was enough family life, but there was never any extra money. "What are you doing? - uttered his wife. She did not immediately know about her husband's venture, but when she did, she was horrified.“Why do our savings go to the cemetery for an unknown person or, more likely, for what?” Tong kept silent. I did not want to speak in such a tone.
On each plate is the Christian name of the unborn child. Especially a lot of Pavlov and Mari here. Today, more than seven thousand unborn children rest in the Tonga cemetery, and the number of tiny graves is increasing every day. Sad and scary place.
But the story of Tong Phuoc Fouquet is a story about life, not death. This is a story of joy that began with tears. People began to learn about the strange cemetery. Every now and then Tong noticed at the graves female figures. They came here to cry about their children. It was possible to talk with some Tonga, ask to bring here other women who had an abortion.
One day a girl knocked at the door of the house, a very child. She also came to talk like the rest. With the difference that she hasn’t done an abortion yet, she was just going to. Wu was four months pregnant. She did not know what to do: if the parents find out, and this will happen very soon, they will drive her out of the house. Stay, ”blurted out Fook.
And the belated reproaches of his wife, expressed in a whisper in the night in the kitchen, could not be fixed.He made decisions quickly - and did not change. A few days later another pregnant woman came, then another ...
The wife never argued with her husband again. And their little brick house gradually began to turn into a shelter. The house was filled with shouts, squeaks and eternal steam from drying diapers with diapers.
Women who come here for help, having given birth to a child, either take it with them or leave it, and then Tong adopts a baby.
And more often - adopts. Today, this amazing man has one hundred children! Younger children go to kindergarten, which is located right there at the house (where volunteers work), those who are older - to school.
Tonga has a farm where he grows pigs and chickens for sale: donations and incomes from two jobs are not enough to support such a large family.
How he sustains it is incomprehensible to the mind. Tong only smiles. He not only does not consider his life difficult, he is happy. And he says: “I will continue this work until my last breath. And I will do everything so that the children continue my business and help all the disadvantaged. ”
More people like Tong. They make this world better.
