Project Vietnam Foundation to host annual fundraising Gala

Fountain Valley, Calif. (August 11, 2014) — Project Vietnam Foundation will hold its annual fundraising gala on September 20, 2014, at the Westminster Rose Center to raise funds to support its “Breaths for Newborns” campaign.

The tagline for this black-tie event is “GIVE EACH CHILD THE CHANCE TO LIVE.” On a daily basis, up to 80 babies born in Vietnam will die, mainly due to lack of oxygen at birth.

Guests will be treated to dinner, drinks and entertainment, as well as both live and silent auctions and raffles. All donations are tax deductible and for those who cannot attend, donations will also be accepted online.

Breath For Newborns Gala 2014


On September 20, 2014 donors and volunteers gathered to our sold out black tie event featuring children's cultural dances, Musical entertainment, a Fashion show with Ao Dai from designers Calvin Hiep and Cynthia Bui, Raffles and Art auction of art pieces and watches contributed by Masterpieces Publishing, Inc.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors at the event, and contributions of numerous others, we raised $60,000 to give CPR kits for saving newborn babies in Lam Dong and Kontum provinces.

Our neonatal team in Vietnam


From October 9-23 Dr. Millard and 3 neonatal nurses from Chicago worked at Children's Hospital in Saigon and visited Lam Dong, to train healthcare staff in Neonatal Resuscitation and donate CPR kits basic unit of care at rural areas in the Central Highlands. The medical skills are the only effective intervention to reduce infant mortality and prevent brain damage. Thanks to volunteers like Dr. Millard and her team, we have steadily improved newborn health for the last 12 years. Many guidelines have been adopted from Vitamin K after birth to prevent brain bleeding to essential resuscitations... In 2015 we will again join the International Relief Teams to continue building capacity for the safety of the babies.

Helping Babies Breathe...The Beginning of Life
With improvement in healthcare access, infant deaths has been cut by half in Vietnam. However most of the deaths is concentrated in remote areas where mothers still deliver at home with or without health attendant at birth. About 35,000 newborn babies die because they fail to take that first breath. Join us to be the one to help them have a chance at life!
