Today we bid farewell to Le, Thi Kim Chi and her father Le, Van Tanh. Next week Kim Chi will undergo major plastic surgery in the Calvary Hospital in Hobart to alleviate some of the damage that she has suffered through horrific burns. Mimi came with us to interpret because we had many instructions that needed to be passed on.
Today was both a happy and a sad day as we were all delighted that after so many years Kim Chi will be given a chance to improve her life, but it was a sad to see her mother so naturally upset at seeing her only daughter and husband flying off for an unspecified period of time. We hope that the flight and the stopover in Sinagapore will go without a hitch for them as this is the first time either have flown and they were very nervous.
