The million dollar answer...

I asked Mr Sinh, Vice President of UFO ( Local Government NGO) what he thinks Vietnam needs to help break this poverty cycle...
His answer: "televisions"
When he looks at the statistics, he sees the poor people out in rural areas are the ones who have the most children....
Why? He says that if they had a television to kill the boredom, they wouldn't be having 'sexy time' so often to keep themselves entertained ! Thus, a television was essential in every poor persons house to help solve this social problem!
He presented me with a "heart of gold" certificate and a 'crystal' trophy for all my hard work and donations to the poor communities.
This certificate and award definitely goes out to all who helped and donated funds to help these amazing people.
Looks like I should be buying televisions next trip huh?

   As long as ever you can.”
