From the Northern highlands to the flooded plains of the Mekong Delta, Project Vietnam has organized mission trips to underserved areas of Vietnam continuously. We have focused on serving ethnic minorities and poor families in some of the country’s most remote rural locations. We bring health care to the needy through surgical corrections for children with birth deformities and eye defects, medical exams and treatment to villages and schools, and training to health personnel at all level of the medical system, from villages to hospitals and academic centers.
