Four members of Board of Directors of Friends of Project RENEW meet in Washington DC to finalize plan for 21 September fundraising event. By Tuesday afternoon, the event had already received more than 90,000 USD in donations.  

Washington, DC (20 September 2022) — Supporters and Friends of Project RENEW will gather for a fundraising reception on Wednesday, 21 September 2022 in Washington, DC for the first time since Covid-19 outbreak. The event will occur near the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, DC. This special event is aimed at raising funds so that project RENEW’s life-saving interventions can be expanded from Quang Tri to Quang Ngai Province — continuing RENEW’s mission to make Vietnamese children and adults safe from bombs and mines.

The reception will also feature U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy, who will soon retire after decades of leadership in mitigating the consequences of the war in Viet Nam, Cambodia, and Laos. Among speakers at the reception are the former U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius, Pulitzer Prize winner Viet Thanh Nguyen, Project RENEW cofounder, Chuck Searcy. Hien Ngo will be in Washington to make a presentation to the group.  Nguyen Thi Dieu Linh, who is in charge of UXO survey and clearance program of NPA/RENEW in Quang Tri Province, will make a statement via video.

Please consider donating and attending the fundraiser either in person or remotely.
