On December 12, 2016 we visited a poor community with health and hygiene products for children. The district of Khanh Son is a mountainous region in Khanh Hoa province, and consists of many impoverished communities of the ethnic Raglay minority group. Clean water is hard to come by, and sanitary conditions are not ideal. Because of these factors, many of the region’s children suffer from intestinal worms, which can lead to debilitating illness and long-term damage. The condition is easily treated with deworming medicine, but the families often cannot afford to buy the medicine needed to treat their children.
On this visit, we brought deworming medicine for 250 children and 50 adults. We also brought some anti-lice shampoo packets, and treats for the younger children. This charity trip was sponsored through an amazing fundraising effort from the students at Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School in Richmond, VA.
Thank you for helping the children in this poor community!
