Our projects in Vietnam extend beyond economic aid. For almost 40 years My Lai has been evoked only in the context of grief, anger, and recrimination.
Before beginning our first project in My Lai, the Madison Quakers resolved to break that chain of hatred and find ways to honor the humanity of people who had been de-humanized, including, first, the Vietnamese people,and also American veterans, anti-Vietnam War protestors, and others.
By breaking the chains of hatred that have kept us apart we begin to understand that we are more alike than we are different.
The Madison Quakers’ initiatives in Vietnam have expanded to almost 30 villages, reaching many families in need.
