In Vietnam I worked on ethnographical research. My role was to get to know the people based on interviews conducted with them as well as observations. Despite not knowing the Vietnamese language (worked with translators) I was able to learn a lot about people with amputations, their experiences with limb loss, their prosthetic history but also their characters. We worked with patients in the hospital as well as visited them at their homes to get to know them better.
Part of Penta mission involves organizing volunteer program for local high school students to educate them about the issues related to disability and encouraging them to take action.
Plans for future: Prosthetic program for Vietnam.
