重啟孩子們微笑的夢想-一起送愛到越南 (International Webinar) (Written by melody, translated by Lanis and Yolanda)

 

 

「溫暖白色巨塔的小螺絲釘」WHC-USR計畫,去年9月獲邀隨同合作夥伴義大醫院的國際行動醫療團前往越南,親眼目睹Operation Smile 世界級的NPO組織是如何帶領一群來自世界各地的專業國際志工,充分發揮每個人的領導力及行動力,從事意義非凡、令人感動的兒童兔唇修護手術。

 

 

雖然醫療不是我們文藻人的專長,但是我們看見我們的英文跟越語能力是能夠幫得上忙的,尤其在整個醫療團的服務當中,「non-medical volunteer」也扮演著不可小覷的角色。因此回台後一直苦思如何規劃國際服務學習方案,期盼我們的學子能夠跨國、跨域参與世界性組織,將台灣的愛送到越南。更期盼看見越南經濟弱勢的兔唇孩子們能重啟微笑、重建信心,有機會去追逐他們人生的夢想!

 

 

即使因為COVID-19讓一切都暫緩下來,感謝令人欽佩的鄭勝峰副院長(自2002年開始投入OSV的服務至今)特別召開「疫情時代的國際創新合作模式講座」,邀請我們小螺絲釘團隊再次與OSV在雲端相遇。不僅越南Chief Representative-Mr. Viet P. Nguyenru精彩分享了operation smile Vietnam’s Covid-19 strategies,義大醫院執行副院長 鄭勝峰與義守大學國際長吳岱恓也透過這次國際會議,提出大家日後可能合作的方向。

 

 

尤其本團隊主持人廖俊芳也分享她去年實際參與越南行動醫療團義診的觀察與心得,提出醫療跟衛教或許可以分流、同時進行,尤其在Dental Team是在偏遠的小學裡進行應該可以考慮同時進行英語衛教營。 期待能夠藉由無私熱血、已深耕越南18年鄭勝峰醫師的引導,WHC-USR能成為一個跨國、跨域的合作平台,讓台灣有志青年學子參與越南場域的專業服務學習、擔任國際志工開拓視野,有機會能成為成為國際級的leader。

 

 

A dream to bring smiles on kids’ faces again--Delivering love to Vietnam (International Webinar) Wenzao Healthcare Communication—University Social Responsibility (WHC-USR) was invited to visit Vietnam in September 2019 in the company of the partners of the E-Da Hospital’s international medical team, a great chance to witness how Operating Smile, a world-class non-profit organization, led a group of professional international volunteers to demonstrate versatility in leadership and executive power while engaging in cleft lip and palate surgery.

 

 

 

Although medical care is not Wenzao’s specialty, our ability in English and Vietnamese communication is able to help out in the situation, with “non-medical volunteers” playing an indispensable role in the whole medical care team. Therefore, ever since our return to Taiwan, we have been thinking and planning for international service learning project, in the hope that our students will be able to cross the borders and disciplines to join global organizations and deliver love from Taiwan to Vietnam. We look forward to seeing the smiles of the lip-cleft Vietnamese children from economically disadvantaged families, who will regain confidence and pursue their life goals.

 

 

As a lot of the normal practice has been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we owe our special thanks to Vice Superintendent Seng-Feng Jeng of E-DA Hospital (who has devoted himself to OSV service since 2002) for convening a webinar on the theme international innovative cooperation in the post COVID-19 era and for inviting members of WHC-USR for a reunion with Operation Smile Vietnam. Not only did Chief Representative Mr. Viet P. Nguyenru from Vietnam share Operation Smile Vietnam’s Covid-19 strategies, but also Vice Superintendent Seng-Feng Jeng and Dean Taichi Wu of Office of International and Cross-Strait Affairs, I-Shou University offered possible directions for future cooperation. WHC-USR Principal Investigator, Prof. Melody Liao, who also shared her experience and observation as a participant in the touring charity treatment in Vietnam, proposed that medical treatment and hygiene education could be conducted on two tracks at the same time, especially in the case of the dental team, where hygiene education camps could be simultaneously held in the same elementary schools of the rural areas.

 

 

With unreserved guidance and help from Dr. Seng-Feng Jeng, who has dedicated himself to charity medical treatment for over 18 years in Vietnam, we envision the transformation of WHC-USR into a cross-national and cross-disciplinary collaboration platform, allowing more students to participate in professional service learning in Vietnam and broaden their horizons through international volunteering, which would contribute to their leadership on the international stage.
