Goodwill Ambassador Audrey Hepburn visits children in a UNICEF-supported creche in the hamlet of Phuc Ly, Phu Minh Commune, Tu Liem district near Hanoi in Vietnam.
The visit to Vietnam in October/November of 1990 contributed to drawing world attention to the needs of children in this aid- starved country. UNICEF cooperation in Vietnam focuses on increasing primary health care outreach including immunization, growth monitoring and maternal care; the construction of handpumps and latrines to extend safe water and sanitation availability; and support for daycare centres and universal primary education including the training of teachers and supplies provision. UNICEF also directs special attention to the country’s isolated minorities.
