Already from my student days I know MCNV to be an organization that strongly opposed that terrible war in Vietnam and that provided direct and effective medical aid to the victims of the war in Vietnam and later in Laos. MCNV are experts in health and nutrition, combating the climate crisis, and providing quality care for the disabled and the elderly. I hope that with my 30 years of experience in international cooperation and my knowledge in the field of gender and social equality, entrepreneurship, and humanitarian and sustainable development I can make a small contribution as the new chairperson of MCNV, especially for a solidary and sustainable future to continue creating for the most marginalized in the Mekong.” – Cily Keizer
