Snapshot of a Volunteer…by Jemma Thompson

Living and working in Ho Chi Minh City means no two days are ever the same. I had little idea of what to expect when I boarded my flight in Brisbane back in April but have been overwhelmed by a sense of love for this country and its people. Although my daily commute is consistently on the back of a motorbike, each day at work is unique and interesting. Many days I work directly with the therapists and patients, providing support and guidance to develop confidence and skills. Other days involve formal teaching or development of resources. No two days are the same but every day I am met with enthusiasm and gratitude. I genuinely feel a part of the team and am greeted so warmly wherever I am on the hospital campus by staff, patients and families. The local team and I share lunch each day and provide support in any way I need. They have taken me out for dinner and constantly share local traditions and culinary delights with me. I feel so fortunate to have found Trinh Foundation and been given the opportunity to come to Vietnam. Not only am I developing the profession I love, but I’m also growing and learning so much along the way.
