Success stories
In 2010, ChildFund Vietnam helped to build a much-needed health centre in rural Bach Thong District. Seven years on, the eight-room health centre now provides services to around 500 patients each month – more than double the number of people the old clinic served in 2009.
Today is the International Women’s Day, and this year’s theme is: Be Bold for Change.

Ten-year-old Hang is a Grade Four student who has been living with her aunt in Cao Bang after her parents separated several years ago. Experiencing difficulty at an early age, she has had low confidence and found it hard to connect with other children.
“I had never played any sport before. Playing rugby made me realise that I have special running skills, which is amazing! I am the fastest runner,” says thirteen-year-old Oanh, a sponsored child and a passionate member of ChildFund’s Pass It Back program in Vietnam.
