Today we said a sad farewell to three wonderful volunteers. CHIA always remains grateful to those who choose to give us their time so generously. Volunteers tell us that they gain so much from their experience and CHIA loves to have them contribute to our charity. CHIA believes that anyone who wants to volunteer with us has something to offer, even if it's in a small way but most volunteers give more than we could ever ask.

Thank you Julia for your amazing accounting skills and knowledge. You have helped us immensely. Thank you Haley for giving us your time, helping with fundraising and grant seeking (its a big job). Thank you Jan for taking such wonderful photos of our kids and activities. CHIA's staff and children will miss you.

Many thanks to Karma Group who sponsor the lessons and Swim Vietnam for providing such a wonderful program specifically designed for children with disabilities.

Also thanks to our current volunteers Jan (photos), Haley and Orly.

CHIA's sexual education program has re begun with thanks to our Australia supporter who raises funds through a Sydney hospital. CHIA has gained permission from the government to conduct 21 new sessions (Schools) throughout the province of Quang Nam.

CHIA's staff and midwife present classes to year 9 girls and boys (aged 15), providing information about sexual health, pregnancy prevention and self care. In Vietnam, Sexual health is not provided in schools and it is not openly spoken about, therefor the need to conduct such classes rose out of the alarming high number of teenage pregnancies, abortions and STDs.

The outstanding positive response from the students, teachers and families shows a great need to continue this program, in support of young people and their healthy futures.
