For the poor children with cancer, she paints

On the afternoon of March 9, the "Hope" painting exhibition by Nguyen Thi Quynh Huong, a final-year student of Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy was kicked off by the French Institute in Hue.

Visitors at the exhibition

The display features 20 pieces of drawings made by Quynh Huong over the past year, following an idea of an exhibition to fundraise for poor pediatric cancer patients. The acrylic and lacquer works, which capture the still life, young girls, landscape etc., depict the author’s emotions and insights about life. Visitors can come across the images of innocent, bright smiles of children with cancer, flying paper cranes, sunflowers, or the ancient streets of Bao Vinh quarter, on which Quynh Huong travels every day.

The work “the little angel”

"My work and study environment, which to contact with pediatric cancer patients, have urged me to do something to share and help them to combat their disease. It’s how I came up with the idea of ​​drawing to raise money to help the children. All the money collected from selling the paintings will be donated to the poor children suffering from cancers,” shared Quynh Huong. Her soulful works are showcased to the public until March 24.
