In October 2014, Two Focusing Philanthropy staff members spent two days in Hue, Vietnam with the BasicNeeds team.
Day 1 consisted of a field trip to see patients, caretakers, and Women’s Union volunteers. Day 2 was an event celebrating the conclusion of the four year BasicNeeds Vietnam program where patients, donors, health ministry officials, and program volunteers gathered to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of all those involved and to raise further awareness for mental health problems.
Our team met with multiple BN staff members including Tam, the program manager for BasicNeeds Vietnam based in Hanoi, Vietnam, and Chris Underhill, Basic Needs founder and President, based in the UK. Pictures from this two-day program site visit are included in this album.
Ongoing program site visits of our showcased recipient organizations are one of the many ways in which we provide our growing donor network with confidence and evidence that their targeted giving is achieving the greatest possible human impact.
