Early Intervention Program

 

 

Unfortunately in most children with disabilities in Vietnam, including those believed to be affected by Agent Orange/Dioxin, do not have access to early identification and early intervention programs. This is particularly true for those who live in rural areas.  As a result many children do not receive the services they need in order to reach their full potential.

 

 
   

 

One of WLP's partners, the Office of Genetic Counseling and Disabled Children (OGCDC) at the Hue School of Medicine, has taken steps to remedy this situation. With help from donors in the US, France, Belgium, Australia and Vietnam, OGCDC built an early intervention center in rural Nam Dong District in Thua Thien Hue province.

WLP supported the center by providing equipment for the center's rehabilitation and class rooms.

With your help WLP can continue to support the center's on-going operating costs. Your support will help WLP pay for the teacher's and therapist's salaries, buy materials for the class activities, provide daily lunches and snacks for the children and cover other operating costs of the program.
