Dan Winthorpe UK National 3 Peaks Challenge 14th July 2012! During my time in VN I have become involved with the charity 'Vietnam Volunteer Network'. This is an org which supports orphanages within VN. One of the orphanages the charity is affiliated with is Go Vap Orphanage in HCMC, just around the corner from where I live. This is where around 230 kids call “home” and where I have been given the opportunity to help out. For info & to sponsor me pls visit the link.
The VVN (Vietnam Volunteer Network) has reached 29,701 likes on #Facebook! Please help us to get to 40,000 on 30th April to celebrate me leaving #Vietnam as one of the last #orphans in 1975 on that date as well as 40 years since the end of the #VietnamWar, my 40th (I turned 40 February) as well highlighting the work my #VVN & I have done to help the orphanage's, children afflicted with #AgentOrangeAgent & other projects. Together we can make a difference…
