Operation Smile, Vietnam
Phoenix Voyages has supported a charity event organized in Vietnam to aid a charitable organization, “Operation Smile”, for the 4th consecutive year.
Since 1989, Operation Smile Vietnam has been working to transform the future of thousands of children whose day-to-day experience was to be shunned, feared, ridiculed and isolated because of their deformities. Their mission is to provide free surgeries for children with cleft lips as well as medical development programs. Today more than 15,000 children are in need of medical surgery in Vietnam. For only 100 USD, you can help a child to turn and face the world with a smile!
Phoenix Voyages is also going to extend its cooperation to “Operation Smile”, who are planning to broaden their horizon in Cambodia, where a lot of people are in need of such medical care.
Hand in Hand, Vietnam
Moreover, Phoenix Voyages has supported the “Hand in Hand” Quang Binh Humanitarian Mission organized by the Family Medical Practice, whose team of doctors and nurses went on a 5-day mission to 7 communes in Minh Hoa, the poorest district in Quang Binh province. The total of 5,500 adults and children were examined and treated by the medical team and medications worth USD 8,000 were provided as well as 30 tons of rice, 3 tons of salt and 10 ton-worth of donated goods such as linens, toiletries, towels, blankets, clothing and toys.
