The Freeman Foundation Continues to Assist Landmine and War Victims in Vietnam
Last March, Mr. and Mrs. Houghton Freeman of the Freeman Foundation paid a special visit to the VNAH outreach program in the Mekong Delta region of southern Vietnam. VNAH coordinated with the Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs of Long An Province to organize the delivery of 95 wheelchairs to severely disabled landmine and war victims. The brief ceremony was held at the Tan An City Healthcare Center. Most of the recipients were double amputees. All of them were first time recipients.
Under the current project, which the Freeman Foundation is funding, VNAH will provide more than 4,600 wheelchairs for landmine and war victims in the southern region of Vietnam.
