[For Hanoi Sundowners on 4 May, click here.]

AusCham’s NGO of the Month for May 2017 in HCMC is The Fred Hollows Foundation Vietnam.

Our Special Guest will be Mr Tran Van Giap, the boy in the iconic poster.

In 1992, when Giap was just 8 years old, Fred Hollows saved his eyesight. The iconic photo of Giap was used in the poster behind the marketing campaign for the Fred Hollows Foundation.

Today, 25 years’ later, Giap is a maths teacher and is married with two children in HCMC. Giap will also join our Sundowners event.
