Phan Rang, Vietnam-Dora Rusin, Interplast volunteer services coordinator.
Tonight our team is leaving to Phan Rang, Vietnam. We are thrilled to work with our fabulous host Dr. Nguyen Thi Hien who has been working hard to coordinate our work at the local hospital. This is my first trip to Vietnam, and I expect it to be a bit more challenging because most of my trips have been to Latin America where I speak the language. Dr. Vu My Linh will be helping me as a translator during our visit. I look forward to learn more about Vietnam during my visit, but most importantly I am honored to have the opportunity to work closely with the team to provide the surgery that many of these patients have been waiting for.
In the upcoming weeks I will be posting blogs with stories of the patients we meet. I hope you will visit this blog frequently.
