February 17 - March 3
In February 2019, an EMAS team called Medical Aid for Vietnam (MAV) is travelling to remote regions of the country to provide medical, vision and dental care to people without access to these services, some having never seen a doctor.
In addition to primary healthcare in underserved areas, the MAV Team also identifies pediatric cardiac patients, performs cataract surgeries for adults, and provides medicines and equipment for local healthcare facilities. They also teach advanced ophthalmological techniques at major medical centres in the country. The MAV Team can be as large as 50 volunteers serve over 10,000 people on one mission trip. They often struggle through heat waves, downpours and language barriers to serve those in need, but also enjoy fellowship with other team members.
