The war has passed for more than 40 years but has left enormous consequences for the Vietnamese people, including the pain of Agent Orange. That pain still lingers over the years, through the generations.

In order to help alleviate that pain and support the living conditions for Agent Orange victims’ families, SCC coordinated with the program “New Year For Agent Orange Victims in Vietnam ” to give Tet gifts as a share of difficulties with the expectation that these families will have a Tet full of love.
