Looking back on LSN-V

10 Jul

Now we are officially the Association for Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (AEPD). I would like to show you what the NGO does and how they work. In 2008, the organization, which at the time was still the Landmine Survivor Network – Vietnam, produced a short promotional movie about the work they do. It will provide you with a good insight into my daily  surroundings and the people I work with (even if some have left the organization since then). Also, it shows how LSN-V has helped many people with disabilities in the three sectors of health, economic opportunities and social empowerment. LSN-V has achieved many remarkable things, especially thanks to its unique model of peer support, which will remain at the core of AEPD. Enjoy!
