Dental care for some of the CEF children
Some of our children have just received dental care from 'Vietnam Vision'. 'Vietnam Vision' is based in Sydney and their team visits Vietnam yearly and provides free medical care, particularly cataract surgery.
This year they also provided free dental care. Some of 'our children' who lived near the hospital where they were based on this trip were able to benefit from this generous help.
Most waited with apprehension, but as you can see from a couple of the pictures, it was fun for some! The girl who you see laughing was very confident that she had good teeth and no cavities, but she had cavities, as did half of 'our children'.
Thank you 'Vietnam Vision' for this very generous and beneficial gift!

I am living in Vietnam because I feel I need to really understand Vietnamese people to be able to trully help them in a meaningful and appropriate way. I feel I and many other westerners are arrogant as we generally believe we know what's best for those more challenged and less fortunate; but we don't. There is so much to learn and understand to trully be of service.
