Meet the Nguyen family. Mr. Nguyen, a war veteran, was poisoned by Agent Orange in the Vietnam War. The pesticide killed one of his children and left three disabled. You can help the Advocacy Project and the Association for Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (AEPD) purchase a buffalo, handicraft material for the family and pay for the siblings' medical costs.
During the Vietnam War, over 19 million tons of Agent Orange, a deadly pesticide, was sprayed over the country. Those exposed suffer from many health conditions. Mr. Nguyen's daughter, Lien, was born with cerebral palsy and needs constant care from her mom, Mrs. Pham. Their two sons, Trung and Toan, have malformed legs. Toan is wheelchair-bound. Both are also hemophiliacs. The family often has to sell off assets to cover medical costs.
We need your help to provide the Nguyen family with the essentials to make a living and care for the siblings. Mrs. Pham needs a new buffalo to work the field. Toan needs material to create his craft models and add to their income. Lastly, both brothers require costly blood transfusions from a faraway hospital in Hue. Your support will also help the family pay for transportation and medical care.
When you give to this project, you're giving the Nguyen family more than a buffalo or crafting material. You are giving them the tools they need to support themselves. You are giving a pair of loving parents the ability to care for their kids. You are giving Lien, Trung, and Toan a fighting chance against Agent Orange. You are making a real difference in their life.
