In the city of Nha Trang, capital of the province of Khanh Hoa, Vietnam, there's a man called Tong Phuoc Phuc, a man who works in building industry.
In 2001, Tong took his wife to the hospital to control her pregnancy. While he waited until his wife was assisted, Tong noticed how women who were pregnant were entering a room and when they go out, most of them did it crying and with great sadness.
Suddenly, Tong understood what was happening and felt really outraged. He thought that he had to do something.
Sex-selective abortion is a very common practice in Vietnam. In the Asian country, it's forbidden to use the ultrasound to get to know the gender of the baby, but however, the doctors have their ways to make the mothers know about it.
Tong managed to get the hospital staff to give him the abortifacient material, and with the use of his savings, he acquired a part of land and he turned it into a small cemetery to give them at least an honorable burial.
Each tomb of the cemetery is identified with a Christian name. There are many of them already and they raise in number every day. In the modern times, we can see women who visit the cemetery and cry by the side of one of the tombs.
Once a young lady knocked on Tong's door. She was pregnant and when she went to the hospital to get an abortion, a woman talked to her about him. Her name was Wu, she was four month pregnant and she told Tong that she was desperate. Her parents couldn't know that she was pregnant.
He let her stay at his house. After a few days, another woman appeared under the same circumstances and then another, and then another one. Tong, with the help of his wife, turned his home into a refuge for pregnant women.
Most of the women leave their babies after giving birth and Tong adopts them. He has currently 100 children adopted. They have now a daycare for the babies and the older ones are going to the school.
"I will do this job while I'm alive and my children will continue it when I die", he said.
More people should do something like Tong Phuoc Phuc did. Maybe in this way, we'd be able to help someone to live in a better world.
