Jessy Lai’ Charity Honeymoon Trip as arrived in Vietnam. This stop is also to promote the SJC 1000 Days Programme, a collaboration between Lai and UNICEF. Earlier, the team visited Philippines for the same purpose, and has set up development programmes for children in need. Lai also discussed strategies for the SJC 1000 Days Programme with the Officer In Charge of Philippines’ Child Health Division, Family Health Office.
Lai was in Vietnam for three days. Within these three days, Lai and UNICEF visited three health departments in Dien Bien: the Dien Bien provincial Department of Health (DOH), Hua Ngai Community Health Center, and the Muong Cha District Health Center.
On day 1, Lai met with the chairperson of DOH, who explained the agenda for the following two days. Together with DOH, Lai visited Hua Ngai Community Health Center the next day.
Because knowledge about early childhood nutrition is scarce in rural areas, many Vietnamese households are unaware of the importance of good nutrition within the first 1000 days of a child’s life. Malnutrition at this stage can cause stunted growth, affecting the physical and brain development of children. That means kids won’t get to realise their full potential, affecting both their academic performance and income in future.
To ensure that all health workers have sufficient knowledge about early childhood care, UNICEF and DOH set up a simple crash course. The class will teach health workers to carry out pregnancy tests, deliver babies, care for newborns, and educate parents about childhood nutrition. Medical professionals are employed throughout the process to ensure the right knowledge is passed on.
After the crash course, Lai, UNICEF, and DOH visited 2 families to educate parents on early childhood care and nutrition.
The last agenda on this trip is to visit Muong Cha District Health Centre. Lai, UNICEF, and DOH held a meeting with the officers and doctors at the centre to discuss early childhood care. They also took a tour of the health centre’s facility for newborn babies.
After Vietnam, the month-long Jessy Lai’ Charity Honeymoon Trip has finally come to an end. But this does not mean Lai is slowing down in charity work. In fact, Lai will be attending even more charity events, inspiring others to do the same by setting an example.

《彩云慈善蜜月之旅》来到了越南,这一次依然是与UNICEF合作推广“1000天儿童早期综合发展项目”,而越南与菲律宾则被选为首两站援助国家,拿督斯里赖彩云日前已飞往菲律宾展开“关爱贫穷区孩童身心发展”行程,探视了患有营养不良的儿童也与该国的儿童保健与家庭健康部门(Child Health Division,Family Health Office)主任商讨了“1000天儿童早期综合发展项目”的对策。
拿督斯里赖彩云在越南逗留三天,三天内,拿督斯里赖彩云随同UNICEF探访了奠边省(Dien Bien )三个卫生与健康部门,分别是奠边省健康署(Dien Bien provincial Department of Health ,下称DOH),Hua Ngai社区健康中心(Hua Ngai commune health center)以及孟查县健康中心(Muong Cha district health center)。
抵达的第一天,拿督斯里赖彩云会见了DOH主任,主任为拿督斯里赖彩云解说接下来两天的探访议程,在DOH的陪同下,拿督斯里赖彩云第二天即启程探访Hua Ngai社区健康中心。
由于偏远乡区较缺乏相关的育儿知识,导致许多越南家庭并未意识儿童生命早期的1000天是至关重要的时刻,若患上慢性营养不良会导致生长迟滞,进而影响儿童的身体和大脑发育,儿童将无法发挥全部潜能,其直接的结果就是学习表现不佳,未来收入较低。
为了确保医护人员都具有正确的育儿知识,UNICEF与DOH特别为该健康中心的医护人员以及由少数民族助产士策划了一项简单的辅导课程,在观察了相关医护人员如何进行孕妇怀孕检验,助产,新生儿复苏治疗以及讲解如何治疗营养不良孩童后,UNICEF也派出专业的育儿专家为医护人员进行辅导,传授他们正确的育儿以及医疗知识。
辅导课程完成后,拿督斯里赖彩云也随同UNICEF以及DOH探访了2个家庭,辅导家长们关于育儿的知识。
在越南的最后一个行程是探访孟查县健康中心,拿督斯里赖彩云偕同UNICEF、DOH以及该健康中心主任与医护人员进行了一场会议,为医护人员进行了育儿辅导并参观了孟查县健康中心的新生儿护理单位。
结束了越南的行程后,维持一个月的《彩云慈善蜜月之旅》正式告一段落,但不代表慈善活动就此结束,相反,拿督斯里赖彩云接下来将参与更多的慈善活动,以行动来呼吁社会大众更为关注弱势群体的需求。
