Anglican Aid's partner, Viet-Aust Bac Ai Association, supports a medical centre near Qui Nhon city, on Vietnam's eastern shore. The area experiences flood in the rainy season and drought in the dry season every year.
Built in 1933 (87 years ago), the facility has been run by the sisters of the Gò Thị The Lovers of the Holy Cross. They have managed well with maintenance and minor repairs despite the clinic being in a very active war zone prior to 1975.
Now it's time for a major renovation to bring the clinic up to the government's standard for registration and safety. The government is happy with this charity operation but the facility doesn't meet the standard anymore.
The clinic provides free medical and health care to the local population, many of whom are poor and/or live with disabilities. There are 4 certified-medical sisters working in the facility supplemented by volunteer doctors from time to time. Each day 20-30 the clinic sees patients regardless of their background. They receive medicine, guidance of preventing and curing disease and love. They can not afford to be treated in the city and they desperately need to have people on their side.
