The word from Chantal SELIN, President of ADM Viet Nam Aquitaine

I made the acquaintance of Dr. TRAN, president of ADM Viet Nam Centre, in 2004 as a regular Doctor when I lived in the Loiret. Following many exchanges for a few years, I was impressed by the extreme dedication of this humanitarian association. I engaged in this association at the beginning of my retirement I spend in Gironde.
Antenna ADM Viet Nam Aquitaine was created on September 11, 2010 to participate actively in humanitarian actions of ADM Viet Nam Centre with women, men and means we can have in the Aquitaine region.
Installed recently in the Aquitaine region, I met several people wanting to get involved with us in this adventure to the service of the poor.
The volunteer active members arise from the medical and non-medical environment.
