Art Therapy

Over the next 2 months at the center Jennifer and Jilly both from Great Britain will train another local lady for our Helping Hands Vietnam program. Jennifer and Jilly are both accomplished artists and have been conducting an art therapy program with as many of the kids at the center as possible. In order to make the program sustainable they will train Muoi and also provide funding for a salary so that she can then carry on their work. We are lucky to have such a diverse range of volunteers come to us and help us provide the variety that the children need in their lives. (more pics below)
