Effort to Encourage Volunteerism in Vietnamese-American Community
Last summer, VNAH hosted a visit of several Vietnamese-American families from the United States who were on home visit. This group are members of the young generation of Vietnamese Americas who are doctors and other professionals, many who were returning to Vietnam for the first time. All are strongly supportive of the many activities of VNAH/HealthEd's efforts in Vietnam.
The group participated in an outreach delivery of wheelchairs to amputees and also visited several school projects in the rural districts.
Under the current project that is funded by the Ford Foundation, VNAH will engage the Vietnamese community in the United States and invite their participation to provide technical expertise in rehabilitation services and other areas.
