All the founders of our association were born in Vietnam. Initially, our charitable efforts focused on supporting individuals affected by leprosy in villages near our hometowns.

The majority of our founding members adhere to the Catholic faith. Our initial awareness of the dire situations faced by individuals affected by leprosy came through a Catholic nun or priest based in the United States, who provided us with contacts for those working in leprosy villages.
