Louise Flanagan raises AU$4,000 for Chop Vietnam at her ‘Mad Men’ inspired dinner party in Hong Kong recently. With great attendance from Louise’s wide circle of friends, live music and some classic Vietnamese dishes lovingly prepared by Lam ‘Chop‘ himself, created a fantastic evening enjoyed by all for a great cause.
These funds will be well received and distributed to the centres in due course.
Thank you Louise and all those that contributed and helped make the evening a great success.

A great evening had by all
A big thank you to everyone involved in our annual fundraiser last night – we raised just over AU$15,400 between raffle tickets, auction items and donations.
Thanks to everyone who’s kindly donated items for auction; for those who have donated their time; and The Idea of North for their fabulous performances. Also a very big thank you to Claire de Lune and all the team at Claire’s Kitchen at Le Salon for a fantastic evening, great food and venue – we highly recommend people visit this beautiful French restaurant when in town.
We’ll get some photos from the event up soon.
Thanks to you all from Lam, Chris and the Chop Vietnam team.
Just back from a visit to the Tieng Vong Clinic – the HIV outpatients clinic here in Saigon with Lam and Sharon. A very insightful visit with the number of patients attending the clinic up at 2,260 people is desperate need of medical attention. One patient today was in serious trouble and not sure if he’ll survive. Ms Vinh and her team of volunteers are doing an amazing job with so little support.
