Translation services and additional on-site support were provided by accompanying family members, as well as colleagues from Hue Central Hospital. While this humanitarian effort was self-organized by the volunteers, proceeds from the ASEF’s 2012 Annual Appeal that were earmarked for humanitarian missions supported travel expenses for several  of the participating volunteers.  Read their full report here.

ASE has pledged to support these types of humanitarian missions whenever possible. To foster ASE’s continued involvement in these types of volunteer outreach efforts, please give generously to the ASE Foundation in its Annual Appeal and designate that part of your contribution be used for humanitarian missions.
