2015 Charity project


After the success of my first small scale project in 2014, I then raised $5,114 AUD and returned to Vietnam in August 2015.  With the help of my team of locals we sourced excellent quality jackets, clothing, gumboots and food directly from Hanoi to support children and elderly in Ta Giang Phinh, a particularly poor subsistence farming district in the mountains approximately 36 Klms from Sapa.   We worked in conjunction with the Local Committee and wherever possible we purchased products made in Vietnam to support local industry.
