Established in 1998, the Vietnam Friendship Village under the Vietnam Veterans’ Association is currently providing regular medical care for nearly 200 veterans and children with disabilities who are victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin.

Senior Lieutenant General Be Xuan Truong inquiring after a veteran at the Village
The Deputy Minister highly appreciated great efforts of the village's staff in overcoming hardships and taking care of the policy beneficiaries and disadvantaged children at the village.

Gen. Truong also committed that the MND would pay more attention to the implementation of preferential policies towards national contributors in general and victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin in particular. He also hoped that the village's staff would continue overcoming difficulties, providing due medical care, physical therapies, education and vocational training for Vietnamese children and veterans affected by Agent Orange/Dioxin.
