Extreme poverty in Vietnam and a lack of skilled professionals, including Occupational Therapists, means that access to basic treatment is unavailable to many families, especially in rural communities.
The centre I will be working at cares for disabled children (many are orphans) and adults; offering therapeutic and practical help to enable individuals to manage a variety of mental and physical conditions.
I am going to be funding my flights, visa and additional associated costs, but am hoping to raise money to cover the cost of the project I am volunteering with :)
If you feel able to donate something towards the project, I would be so so grateful and I know that my time volunteering will be extremely well spent :)
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your donation if you are able.
