Supporting self-help: David Graham in Vietnam

David Graham (Vietnam, health)

In Vietnam, a widespread lack of awareness and education leads to discrimination against people living with HIV. Ben Nguyen and her two young children were shunned by their community when she discovered she was HIV positive. That’s why VSO volunteer David Graham is working to strengthen self-help groups that offer vital support to Ben and other people like her.



How do VSO placements work?

We place professional and skilled volunteers with local partner organisations, from grassroots groups to government ministries, to build their capacity and ability.
