In 1995 The
Christina Noble Children's Foundation was made aware of the
plight of a destitute community located in a remote area of
Dinh Quan province, three hours drive from Ho Chi Minh City.
CNCF immediately commenced investigations into the most urgent
needs of the community and as a result, over the next two years,
built and equipped six classrooms, constructed three water
wells, and built and equipped a First Aid Station for the community.
Trade plus Aid's donation of $3,798 financed the operational
needs of this First Aid Medical Station in 2003, ensuring continued medical care for the
1400 people in this poor community.
The CNCF Dinh Quan First Aid Medical Station was officially
opened in August 1997. The poverty experienced by the local
community, and the resultant poor standard of hygiene, had
previously made the community very susceptible to malaria
and many other infectious diseases. Since June 1998, CNCF
has witnessed a 90% decrease in the reported incidence of
malaria in the community.
