Thanks from the Go Vap Orphanage
I’ve stayed in touch with Kim Browne, the British woman who was one of the last babies airlifted out of Saigon before it fell in 1975. She is staying in Ho Chi Minh City for a few more weeks, volunteering at the Go Vap Orphanage – where she spent the first two months of her life – and looking for information about her birth mother. Kim said the orphanage will be able to save the lives of more than 50 babies born with hydrocephalus, thanks to the donated brain shunts delivered by the humanitarian tour group my father and I traveled with last week. (Read more about this special delivery in tomorrow’s Journal News.)
Kim recently uploaded this video from the orphanage’s hydrocephalus ward. And, click on the video player below to view some of the photos I took at the orphanage on Saturday.
