Juergen from Hai Duong

Hi,
my name is Eichhorn Juergen....YES I am German.

I live in Hai Duong (North Vietnam) since 2005. Hai Duong has many Expats and maybe we can meet or go out together.

Hai Duong is on the way from Hanoi to Hai Phong (Highway no. 5).

Wish you all a good time in VN.

Welcome :D

Do you know or have you met Expat-Blog member l3ully (Olaf Schutze).  In the first sticky post of this Forum, he's organizing a charity event in Hải Dương run by a German couple.

Hello Tran,
yes that is the projects we do in Hai Duong.

The couple is me and my wife.
The projects we do are concentrated on poor, blind and disabled kids.

Also we work with VAVA regarding victims of Agent-Orange in our area.

Regards

Juergen

I take it that the Agent Orange victims are the children or grandchildren of veterans who served in the South? No Agent Orange was ever sprayed in North Vietnam.

Do you have an estimate of the number of cases you've seen?

Hello Lirelou,
about 3 million people in VN are affected in Vietnam. The official number says that 150.000 Kids have been born with very bad defects caused by agent-orange and other dioxin.
In Hai Duong we have 25.000 disabled people, 5000 of them are children.
The problem is that the defects can jump generations. We have many children here with "normal" parents, but the grandfather has been in central Vietnam during the war.

The problem exists all over Vietnam. AND IT WILL NEVER END.

Stars of Vietnam is a 100% volunteer-based "organisation". We take care for hundreds of children and families. It is a hobby...not our profession.

That is about 2012. It is not true that Paul Christanell is my partner in the restaurant, but who cares: http://www.qdnd.vn/qdndsite/en-us/75/72 … fault.aspx

Juergun, Thanks for the numbers, and kudos to you for getting involved in the country you live in. Or as the Aussies would say: "Good on yer, Mate."

Hi Lirelou,
the Aussies are helping us as well. We have good customers from Blundstone and we have been watching AFL every weekend.
They support our charity work.

Hello everyone, I am considering taking a job in Hai Duong. Is there a lot to do there and is it easy to meet other expats? Overall, I am looking to move to Vietnam but prefer to go more coastal and stay away from HCM. Any suggestions or help would be fabulous.
