A word from Chantal SELIN, President of ADM Vietnam Aquitaine

"I met Doctor TRAN, President of ADM Vietnam Centre, in 2004 as a treating physician when I lived in the Loiret. After many exchanges for a few years, I was impressed by the extreme dedication of this humanitarian association. I have been involved in this association since the beginning of my retirement that I spend in Gironde.
The ADM Vietnam Aquitaine branch was created on September 11, 2010, to actively participate in the humanitarian actions of ADM Vietnam Centre with women, men and means available to us in the Aquitaine region.
Recently installed in the Aquitaine region, I met several people who wanted to get involved with us in this adventure to serve the most disadvantaged.

Active volunteer members come from both the medical and non-medical communities.  
Like all ADM Vietnam branchs, our funding means consist of memberships, grants and donations as well as the benefits of our events."

The meeting of ADM Vietnam Aquitaine branch creation took place on 11 september 2010 in Saint Romain la Virvée, high place of Bordeaux viticulture.

The ADM Vietnam Centre delegation was composed of Dr TRAN Cuong (président), Mr Louis DANSE (vice-président), Mr Yann DUCHATEL (vice-président), Mr Antoine MARCHAND (secrétary), Mr NGUYEN THI (member), Mr et Mme MOLINA (founding members). 
The présentation of the association was done before about thirty participants.
