Vietnam 2010
Author: Dr. Lan Jones (Show all albums)

It was another successful dental operation for our team. We are dentists, dental students, and non-dental volunteers from the US, UK, Italy, Canada, Australia, and Vietnam. We worked side by side with the local Red Cross staff treating 200-300 children a day. Our team traveled to 9 remote villages in Tien Giang and Long An provinces. To reach some village elementary schools we have to cross rivers on ferries and sometimes, walked the rest of the way when there is no road wide enough for our vans. Everywhere we go, we also provide dental education sessions and gifts of useful household items to hundreds of family with children under 5 years of age. There is nothing more satisfying than to be able to help the children and families of farmers, labor workers, people who have very little, who truly deserve our help, and who are grateful for our effort. We are looking forward to VN 2011 with another international team of volunteers.
