Raising Awareness on Vietnamese Children with Disabilities

Marcia Selva & Tam Nguyen of GCSF

Dear GlobalGivers,

Global Community Service Foundation had the privilege of hosting a fundraiser for the benefit of children with disabilities in Quang Tri Province with the Spouses of the Vietnamese Embassy in Washington, DC on September 28, 2012.  Ambassador Nguyen Quoc Cuong and Madame Hoang Minh Ha welcomed guests to their residence and opened the evening by showcasing the charms of Vietnam through art, music, dance, fashion and food.  Marcia Selva, GCSF founder & president, introduced a special guest in attendance, Mr. Tam Nguyen, GCSF field representative from Dong Ha.  He spoke to the audience about his work and the ongoing projects in Quang Tri Province.

The final GlobalGiving Bonus Day of 2012 will be on Wednesday, October 17th.  Online donations of up to $1000 per donor per project will be matched at 30% until the $50,000 in matching funds are depleted.  Several donors to the Khe Sanh School Library are military veterans who previously served in Quang Tri Province and still fondly remember the local villagers.  You can remember a veteran with a gift donation entered in their honor on October 17th and delivered on Veterans Day, Thanksgiving or other date.

Thank you for supporting the school children of Khe Sanh.
