The 2018 AVCF mission to the village of Tra Cu in Tra Vinh Province, Vietnam in the first week of August has been an outstanding success, thanks to the tireless efforts of a dedicated team of medical, dental and allied health professionals.

The team consisting of GPs, dentists, nurses, ophthalmologists, pharmacists, lab technicians, physiotherapist and a few of us civilians. Volunteers who came from all over the world, including Vietnam, Australia, Japan, Italy, UK, Canada and USA, brought much-needed aid to more than 2,000 local people.

With funding provided by the generosity of the Australian community, especially the Vietnamese community in Australia, we achieved the following amazing results:

  • 450 eye examinations
  • 104 cataract operations
  • 746 dental examinations with more than 1000 dental treatments
  • 1061 medical general examinations
  • 5422 medical prescriptions dispensed
  • 40 onsite physiotherapy
  • 270 hearing aids provided to the hearing loss people
  • 386 reading glass and sun glass given
  • 37 ultrasound scans
  • 95 blood tests
  • 1200 education and hygiene gift packs distributed to disadvantaged children
  • 45 education sanitary packs for teenage girls
  • 300 humanitarian gift packs donated to impoverished families


The above would not be achievable without the generosity of all Australian volunteers who, not only donated their time and expertise, but met all their own travel, accommodation and living expenses – and the very generous donation of medicines, medical and dental supplies and support of our wonderful Australian and Vietnamese companies listed below.
