I was a dental volunteer on the VN 2005 Team, which was the best dental mission trip that I have been on to date. Dr. Jones is the most energetic team leader I have met, and definitely leads from the front! From our base in My Tho, we travelled to 6 different villages in Tien Giang province in the Mekong Delta. We treated hundreds of children each day, from our field clinics in classrooms of the village schools, with excellent support from the Tien Giang Red Cross. There was also time for sightseeing throughout our trip, including a visit to the beautiful century old Vinh Trang Pagoda. We were warmly welcomed into the homes of many local families, and tasted a fabulous range of Vietnamese cuisine.
DDS4KIDS is making a difference in Vietnam, one child at a time, and I would highly recommend this volunteering experience to anyone.
