Australian Vietnam Resource Group (AVVRG)

The project we run in Vietnam is based out of the Long Tan district and has now been going for around 9 years.  The clinic was funded and built by Australia Vietnam Volunteer Resource Group (AVVRG) and started as just a static clinic.  It has grown considerably since then – we sent one or two teams each year initially, but now five to six teams go and work a week at a time.
