Members of the Canada World Youth group have arrived in Vietnam.

CWY in Vietnam

The Canada World Youth CWY Vietnam-Port Alberni team are now in Vietnam.

The Canada World Youth CWY Vietnam-Port Alberni team has been united and is in Vietnam, co-ordinator Lisa Jaster reports from Ha Noi.

After a camp in Squamish, the team set out for a 21-hour transit to Hanoi. “We were greeted by our Vietnamese counterparts at the airport and have now been doing training sessions and exploring Hanoi a bit,” Jaster related in an e-mail.

“Actually we have two teams doing orientation together so we are a very big group. It’s been a lot of fun.

“Everyone is full of energy and excited to finally get to our home community in Vietnam – Hoa Binh (Dan Chua).”

The Canada World Youth group will be in Port Alberni later this autumn.
