Project Description/Abstract

Birth defects have been one of many consequences of the war between 1962 and 1975 in which millions of gallons of Agent Orange were sprayed across many parts of Vietnam. Today, there are 150,000 children whose birth defects can be traced back to their parents’ exposure to Agent Orange. We cannot begin to help these disabled children unless we understand their living conditions by answering the following questions: Can we help? What type of assistive technology can we provide to help the disabled Vietnamese children? What type of service learning can college students or teachers provide to disabled Vietnamese children?
