On March 8, 2018, I embarked on a week-long journey with the Project Vietnam Foundation (PVNF) to help provide medical care for the impoverished people of Central Vietnam. This journey not only deepened my understanding for my cultural heritage, but it also strengthened my admiration of the resilience of the Vietnamese people.
On March 2, Myhanh and I traveled to Pleiku to pick up Siu H’Le and another child to bring with us back to Saigon. Although before our trip, we made a few stops, one at the temple for the families to say their prayers and one at an orphanage to bring gifts and treats. At the orphanage I witness one of the most awful things a child with a deformity can encounter, I’ve heard stories but when you actually experience the words and see children be halted frozen saying, “what’s wrong with your face, why are you like that, will I get that if I touch you” being that the little girl is deaf or partially deaf, these words are just words, but watching the mother be strong for the daughter was incredible.
Our Missions in Vietnam Have Served
Over 2050 children have been given the gift of reconstructive surgery. With the help of local health services, PVNF is able to locate children in need of cleft lip and palate surgery. Many of these surgeries require a follow-up care of nutritional support, speech therapy and a follow-up surgery.
Over 93,000 patients through our Primary Care Missions. Every year, volunteers sign up for our Spring Medical Mission to provide Medical Care, Dental Aid, Vision Checks and Pharmaceutical Services. Our Spring Mission typically begin around February or March.
Our Dental Team have served thousands of children who have never had dental services provided to them in the rural highland regions of Vietnam. Many children who live in the rural areas have no access to dental care; resulting in tooth decay, loss of teeth and poor dental hygiene.
Hundreds of Medical Professionals have been provided with Medical Training and Education focused programs in Neo-Natalogy, Pediatrics, Cardiology, Specialized Care (i.e. Infectious Diseases, Pulmonary Care, Mental Health)
