NEW Phodographer Lee Rappaport in Ho Chi Minh City September 2010

Lee, volunteering with others for Humanitarian Travels said this was her first clowning adventure. ” I didn’t know what to expect when we visited various hospitals, orphanages and AIDS children. Yes, it was an eye opener but from the standpoint of how happy the children could be under these circumstances. We saw so many smiling, joyful faces.

The Dog Meets World was the icing on the cake! What a unique experience we were able to share with these children of Ho Chi Minh City. Thank you for introducing us to this special global diplomacy via a cuddly dog (Foto) & photos.”
