Damian By Mischelle, Heart Institute of Ho Chi Minh City and the CMI (International Medical Center) are glad to announce for the 7th consecutive year the new edition of the Heart Institute. This year will be presented under the most tropical and warmest theme of the Caribbean Sea - “Havana Dream”.


The purpose of this annual gala that has been seeing its success increase over the years as one of the most prestigious events is to raise the necessary funds to finance the growing demands of deprived children needing heart surgery at the heart Institute of HCMC. In 2016, 100% of CMI’s benefits and the whole Charity Gala funds, were allocated to the Heart Institute. It enabled to achieve all those great and inspirational challenges: raise more funds and save more deprived children’s lives.

A prestigious fund raising private dinner was held at La residence of France under the patronage of the French Consulat on June 9, 2017. Gilles Reinhardt, 3-star Michelin chef of the famous Auberge du Pont de Collonges of Paul Bocuse served the classics of Paul Bocuse along with exceptional wines and champagnes given for the occasion. 


An amount of USD40,000 was raised for much needed specialist operating equipment for infants. Your help and generosity will help the Heart Institute to provides life-saving operations for under privileged children with heart disease that would otherwise have no future.

These procedures have very high rates of success and the earlier it is undertaken the better the chances are that the infants will have a perfectly normal life with their families.

The price of one table is USD25,000 (Twenty five thousand US dollars).



These bed warmers are desperately required in the rehabilitation room, post operation. Each unit will enable a single baby to be kept at the correct temperature in the critical hours and days after a surgery has been done. 

These units are the important last step before the newly healthy baby can be brought back into the arms of the parents. This is the moment that families could not dare to dream of before the operation itself became a reality. 

The price for a single warmer unit is USD7,000 (Seven thousand US dollars).


We thank you for your warm heart and looking forward to seeing you at this year’s Heart Institute Gala on the 7th October.
