Fight Tuberculosis in Vietnam Project

Monday, January 25, 2016

A big thank you to everyone who supported this project! We are very excited that we have reached our target so that we can print Dr Paul Mason’s educational children’s book and distribute them to Vietnam villages. This book aims to teach children and their families that Tuberculosis is treatable and will potentially save countless lives.
