VTV.vn - Writer and Meritorious Teacher Nguyen Ngoc Ky, who wrote with his feet, passed away on September 28, at his private home after a long fight against kidney failure.

Teacher Nguyen Ngoc Ky was born on June 28, 1947, in Hai Hau district, of Nam Dinh province. He suffered a severe illness and lost the use of his arms when he was four years old.

Despite the disability, Ky taught himself to write with his feet and became an excellent student. He received two medals of honour presented by President Ho Chi Minh, for his strong will and determination.

In 1994, he moved to Ho Chi Minh City and worked as an educator at the Go Vap Education Centre.

As a member of the Vietnam Writers Association, Ky released many books and poetry collections for children, such as Chu Nhen Du Dua (Balancing Spider) and Qua Bi Ky La (The Miraculous Pumpkin).
