Being President, one of the founders and a board member of Southeast Asia Healthcare Partners, Inc., has taken me and our other volunteers to Vietnam as well as several countries in Southeast Asia numerous times and has given us a love for the people there.  We have worked to improve lives of elderly and orphans as well as provide leadership training to students, organizations and business leaders.

Let Us Know How We Can Help

In the United States, we often refer to a "diamond in the rough," while in Vietnam, there's a saying that goes, "lotus gives fragrant aroma even when blooming from the mud." These cultural expressions convey the belief that each individual is akin to a precious diamond or a gracefully scented lotus flower. When we have someone who encourages us and gives us the right tools, we have the potential to shine brightly and spread our essence to the world.
