We want to commemorate April 30th as the 42nd anniversary of the Fall of Saigon. For the Vietnamese community, there are a variety of perspectives and meanings of and about this historical day. For us here at VietAID, this day is a reminder of the community we serve and the ongoing commitment we have to the Vietnamese American diaspora. We acknowledge and thank our community for their resilience in building a new home together in a new land.
Dr. Dole was a VietAID board member, serving as the Chairman of the Board of Directors from 2010 – 2016. He passed away peacefully on April 23, 2017. We offer our deepest condolences to his family.
