About once a month, OBV Vietnam organizes an awareness and prevention mission trip to areas with a high prevalence of sex trafficking and sexual abuse of children. OBV sees such outreach as a critical first step towards the reduction of child sex trafficking.

It's worth noting that OBV VN is officially a counseling and consulting company, believing that education and family counseling is key to prevention of child sex trafficking and abuse. Each trip includes seminars on parenting and child psychology, along with OBV message on sex trafficking and child abuse. With Dr. Phuong, a visiting OB/GYN, and myself on this trip, sessions on women's health and prenatal care were added to the program.

On November 15, 2013, I joined OBV on this month's trip to Ca Mau, the southern most city in Vietnam.

The Journey

Our team consisted of seven members and volunteers of OBV, plus our regular driver for these kinds of road trips. On this trip was Mr. Binh, OBV VN President, Dr. Phuong Nguyen, an OB/GYN visiting from the U.S., Mr. Sy, a professor of psychology at a local university, Miss Quynh Anh, OBV's counselor who specializes in love, marriage, and family counseling, and Mr. Dang, OBV employee who lives at one of the rehab houses.

This is a little something a volunteer in Austria drew while thinking of the OBV children and of a childhood that she wishes they can all experience. Below is the meaning of the picture :)

Father Nguyen Ba Thong and Mr. Nguyen Duy An, President of One Body Village, came to Houston on May 3rd, 2015 for the spring musical event, which took place at the University of Houston. Along with them were several talented, volunteer performers from California and Vietnam. The singers entertained the audience with a wonderful program that afternoon.
The entire event was devoted to raise awareness for One Body Village . Father Nguyen Ba Thong is the founder of this organization since 2008. His mission is to combat, rescue children from Southeast Asia who were forced into sex slavery and sex trafficking. One Body Village also provides homes, educational and medical assistance to the children. The attendees seemed to have a great time at the musical event; they supported the organization by purchasing t-shirts, cds. All funds go to support victims of sex trafficking in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Singapore.
In the fall, One Body Village supporters will organize a gala, dinner, dancing, auctions, raffle tickets. So, save the date: November 6, 2015. details to be forthcoming on the website:

Be a Voice, Lend a Hand, Make a Difference!

My daughter, E., and I are back home from our travels in Vietnam, but we are not the same people as we were when we left. We will forever be impacted by the sweet little girls we met at your OBV house in Ho Chi Minh City.

Thank you so much for allowing us to visit the OBV house when we were there. Thank you too for the wonderful treatment we received from Ms. Thao. Being picked up and taken back to our hotel was so helpful, and she really made our visit with the girls wonderful! What an incredible place you all have created for these girls. They are safe, well fed, cared for, and loved. There is no greater work than to help these girls.
