With the purpose of collecting funds for our projects in Vietnam, Tim went to Europe where charity events were organized for Maison Chance at the end of October.
She flew to London with her three companions: the famous MC-actor-singer Quy Binh, the singer Lam Ngoc Hoa and the singer Bang Cuong. The flight company Vietnam Airlines generously financed an important part of the travelling costs, which alleviated considerably our expenses.
