Denmark’s Speech Therapy Project for Vietnamese Kids

Danish government has provided nearly 4 billion VND to support a Denmark-funded speech therapy project. The project aims to help Vietnamese children who have undergone operations for cleft palates and hare lips speak more clearly.
         The four-year project helped nearly 6,000 Vietnamese children in 26 provinces and cities. The project also helped train over 1,000 coordinators, 137 supervisors, 72 officials and many relatives of these children on how to help them integrate into the community, provided training on caring for disabled children and taught families and communities about disabled children’s desire to integrate into the society.
         According to the Viet Nam Committee for Population, Family and Children, more than 20,000 children with cleft palates and hare lips have undergone surgeries since 2001.
