VIETNAM #175

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Children are always a delight in Vietnam. At first they are a bit shy (V1) but very quickly enjoy playing up in front of the camera.

As the years go by, Vietnam is getting richer and what we have taken for granted in terms of health and education is now reaching remote villages like this one.

There is a clinic in the Tan Loc area to give advice about contraception, health for children aged 01-06 years old and the prevention of child malnutrition for example.

There are also national health prevention programs against malaria, dengue and development of sanitation. More and more houses have a WC rather than go in the pig sty or cow shed.

The children in the photos have access to kindergarten, elementary school and older ones can go to the high school. A bus takes them to the schools.
