Mission statement: to transform the health, education and communities of disadvantaged people in Asia by building partnerships, developing opportunities and creating sustainable solutions.
The core programs are in the areas of education, healthcare, clean water & sanitation and infrastructure.
East Meets West was born from one woman’s dream of helping to heal the wounds of war between the United States and Vietnam.
“Since 1988, East Meets West has served millions of people in Asia, from providing rural villagers with clean water, to saving newborns by modernizing neonatal wards, to constructing large medical and educational facilities that serve tens of thousands of people every day.”
Fondation Albatros supported East Meets West from 2009 to 2012.
