Support for AO victims grows

Growing numbers of Vietnamese and foreigners have joined efforts in support of Agent Orange victims since the Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA) was founded in January 2008. 60,000 Vietnamese from 53 centrally administered cities and provinces have joined the Association, while 28 foreigners have become honorary members.

This was made known at VAVA’s Second National Congress, held in Hanoi on December 2nd - 3rd. VPDF President Mme Nguyễn Thị Bình, who is also VAVA’s Honorary President, attended the event. Guests from the USA, Great Britain and France were also present.
Prior to VAVA’s foundation, charitable and humanitarian organizations in Vietnam and overseass had carried out many activities in solidarity with Vietnamese AO victims.  These activities, however, were limited to raising funds and operated without coordination.
To address the wide variety of problems facing Vietnamese AO victims, concerned scientists, political and social workers, and victims themselves have worked for years toward the establishment of an organization as their representative. This organization would function as a center for educating and helping AO victims improve their daily lives, building support for them, and conducting legal actions on their behalf.
Their joint efforts led to VAVA’s founding on January 10th, 2008.
The organization has played a key role in building houses, providing medical treatment and education, granting loans for production, and meeting other urgent needs of AO victims. Its central and local funds have received almost VND 62 billion (USD 4 million) from caring donors. This amount, while certainly too small to meet their huge needs, has helped alleviate the suffering of AO victims.  
Another indication of growing support for AO victims is the millions of signatures collected by VAVA on a petition supporting the AO victims’ class-action lawsuit against U.S chemical companies.
Through VAVA, Vietnamese AO victims have also received ever stronger solidarity from fellow AO victims from the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, and Canada./.
