How to Change a Life

Sanh was just 10 years old.  Like many other days, Sanh was with friends running an errand for his father when he spied something on the ground that grabbed his attention.  It was a small metallic object.  What was it? A ball?  A toy?  Sanh grabbed the object to show his friends.  

It exploded. 

Sanh lost his left hand and his chest and legs were badly burned.  Sadly, Sanh’s story is not unique.  Over 100,000 people in Vietnam have been severely injured or killed by mines, mortars, and other explosives since 1975.  One in five landmine victims is a child.  These remnants of war lay where families live, learn, work, and play.

While these grim facts might be reality for families in Vietnam today, the story does not have to end here.  Will you join me in renewing our commitment to reverse the legacy of war and build a safe and healthy future for children and families in Vietnam?

As we move forward into 2014, I invite you to make a donation in honor of a loved one to support our life-saving programs.

Thank you for your generosity and, on behalf of the children and families in Central Vietnam, thank you.

With gratitude,

Michael Auch, Executive Director
