Virginia Thuy Nguyen, Miss Viet Nam-USA 2006, is coming back this month to Viet Nam and will be traveling to Vinh Phuc Province to take part in a fundraising campaign for Project Viet Nam (PVN), a non-governmental children’s charity organization.
Joining her on the trip are PVN volunteers and a group of doctors who will treat children suffering from jaundice.
So far the campaign has been given more than US$13,000 worth of donations. Miss Nguyen hopes that after the trip, the fundraising campaign will have collected enough money to buy a respirator for newborn babies.
Miss Nguyen, 23, won the final round of the beauty pageant last September, beating over 50 other Vietnamese women from all over the United States.
