Our Projects Overview

Vietnam today is a country still suffering from the effects of a war fought over a quarter century ago. A lack of basic health care knowledge in rural areas causes many to suffer and die of preventable diseases. Aggressive steps have been taken to begin to educate the Vietnamese people about the dangers of poor health habits and provide health care facilities for the poor.

Upon discovering the need for preventative health care information and facilities for its citizens, government health officials in Danang City approached Vets With A Mission. They asked VWAM to help establish a series of health clinics in the rural areas and in the city of Danang itself. To date VWAM has built twenty –five rural and city health clinics in Vietnam with sixteen of these facilities being in Quang Nam Province, Danang Province, and Danang City.

These rural health care stations and medical clinics in the cities will establish VWAM's long term commitment to providing health care and the building of medical health care clinics for the people of Vietnam. If you feel you would like to support us in this ministry to the Vietnamese people, please contact us or make a donation on our secure web site. Just follow the link below.

 

VWAM

The Humanitarian aspect of Vets With A Mission began in 1988 and is a group of Vietnam veterans and non-veterans who are dedicated to bringing healing, reconciliation and renewal to the people of Vietnam. It strives to accomplish this through the compassionate, humanitarian efforts of people who desire to rise above the tired political arguments and unnecessary apologetics concerning our involvement in the war. Vets With A Mission is doing something constructive to help a people with whom we have shared so much suffering in common. Get more detail on Vets With A Mission Humanitarian Projects here.

Though America withdrew from Vietnam in 1975, the tragedy did not end there for the Vietnamese people. They still suffer from the devastating effects which decades of war have brought to Southeast Asia. Today, nearly 75 million people struggle under the curse of poverty, inadequate medical care, and grinding hardship. Though normalization is now a reality and Vietnam has taken aggressive steps to modernize her economy her infrastructure, health care, and standard of living still lags behind most of the world.

Vets With A Mission has a variety of projects. We work to establish Clinics and Rehabilitation Centers and have currently built twenty one rural health stations in Vietnam. We offer medical training programs and work with the local doctors to help improve their level of education and skills in the medical profession. We provide medical supplies and equipment to the clinics we've built as well as existing clinics. We work with local churches providing Bibles and Christian literature, funding church repairs, and supporting their outreach efforts, which includes Christian medical teams that reach out to those who are unable to get proper medical care. Through Vets With A Mission these medical teams can give hope to the increasing number of addicts and HIV/AIDS victims in Vietnam.
