Dear Members and Friends:

Welcome to the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre's Newsletter for the first half of December 2011!

We would like to inform you that Medecins du Monde France will close their mission in Vietnam by the end of December 2011 after many productive years in Vietnam. They have completed their last project phase in September; and as of November 2011 their activities will be handed over to local partners in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. We wish to extend our warmest farewell to all staff of Medecins du Monde France.

There are two Working Groups meetings scheduled for December 2011: the Landmine Working Group on 14 December at 14:00; the Disaster Management Working Group on 23 December at 14:00. All meetings will take place at the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre. Please check the 'Calendar of Events' section on our home page for the latest updates and possible changes.

Warm greetings from the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre's Team!
