Dear Mission of Hope Vietnam team members, friends and supporters,
It is with tremendous happiness that we report about our completed, successful, and blessed 2018 Mission Trip. We are so thankful to our volunteers and donors for allowing us to make such a positive impact last summer.
Our mission brought us to several villages along the Southern border of Vietnam. We were overjoyed to meet and serve the people of these remote communities – some of which even lacked clean drinking water.
Over the course of 6 days, we helped treat a total of 3,272 patients and distributed over 2,450 gifts to the poor in Bạc Lieu, Soc Trang and Đồng Nai. Although this is a fair amount of people, it is the love and care of each team member that is more important than the numbers of patients served.
We want to share some videos of what our mission looks like in person. Here are our dentists and volunteers serving at a Khmer church in Soc Trang.
Below is footage of our doctors and volunteers treating patients at a church in Dong Nai.
This video shows our pharmacy department filling prescriptions for patients at a church in Dong Nai.
This is a video of the Oven community gathered outside the local church awaiting treatment.
Here are a few photos of the fun and hardworking 2018 mission team. These 42 volunteers are who made this an enjoyable and successful mission.
Thank you to everyone for all the love and hope you brought to the people we met during the 2 week journey. It has been a blessing to serve with such kind and selfless hearts. We hope to see you again in the next mission in 2020!
