For the first time we were accompanied at the award presentations and on the home visits by Ms. Minh, the Vice Chairwoman of Danang’s branch of the Vietnam Women’s Union, and her assistant, Ms. Kim Bang. Ms. Minh, a 32-year-veteran with the Union, and her assistants proved to be interested in both CEF’s operations and in the children and their families. She was visibly moved by the difficulties faced by the families, and our new relationship with the Union seems to be off to a good start.
They also treated us to a lovely vegetarian restaurant in Danang, which gave us the energy for our second round of home visits in the afternoon.
