US organization lauded for healing scars of war

President of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organizations Nguyen Phuong Nga has underlined PeaceTrees Vietnam (PTVN)'s contributions to healing the scars of war, restoring trust, and fostering friendship between Vietnamese and Americans. During a reception in Hanoi on Tuesday for a delegation of PeaceTrees' sponsors, Ms. Nga lauded PTVN for supporting victims of bombs and mines and their families, calling for the involvement of international volunteers in humanitarian activities in the central province of Quang Tri; as well as holding tree planting activities to restore the environment. PTVN is the first US non-governmental organization to be licensed by the Vietnamese government to search and defuse bombs, mines, and explosives. It has been operating in Vietnam for 23 years.
