UN Foundation Announces Press Fellowship in Vietnam with Focus on Immunization and Child Health


Fellowship will provide journalists with direct access to experts and communities to foster deeper understanding of health and development issues


WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 23, 2014)–The United Nations Foundation today announced a fellowship for a select group of U.S.-based and international journalists in early January 2015 in Vietnam. The fellowship will provide journalists with the latest information on pressing health challenges and promising solutions, with a particular focus on Vietnam’s immunization program and the strategies used to combat disease and improve child health in the region.
In close coordination with UN agencies, government ministries and other partners with in-country expertise, the fellowship will offer unparalleled, direct access to health workers, health experts and UN officials, as well as the opportunity to observe immunization campaigns and other health programs.

“In today’s world, health challenges are at the top of the global agenda. This fellowship gives journalists the opportunity to see first-hand the complexity of these challenges and the progress being made to address them,” said Aaron Sherinian, Vice President of Communications and Public Relations at the UN Foundation. “This trip to Vietnam will offer journalists the chance to gain a first-hand perspective that will deepen their knowledge and enrich their reporting.”

With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and with the collaboration of UN agencies and global health partners, this fellowship is designed to foster participants’ understanding of the issues surrounding international development and global health, and will comprise on-the-record issue briefings, roundtables, conversations with experts and high-level officials, in addition to a number of site visits.

This fellowship is intended for U.S.-based and international reporters who do not have regular access to key experts in Vietnam, but are interested in global health, international development, and the United Nations. Special consideration will be given to journalists whose portfolios include health or foreign affairs.

The application deadline is Friday, November 14. To apply, click here.

20,000 Photos Needed To Put A Face to Every Name On The Wall



For years, volunteers across the country have worked with VVMF on the “Faces Never Forgotten” call for photos campaign. The effort aims to find a face for each of the 58,300 names inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. As of today, VVMF has located photos for 38,300 of the names on the Vietnam Memorial. This means VVMF has only 20,000 photos remaining to put a face to every name on The Wall.

VVMF is delighted to congratulate the people of New Mexico, Wyoming, and North Dakota for finding the 398, 120, and 198 photos respectively of those who died or went missing in action in Vietnam from those states.

New Mexico was the first to complete the momentous task. The effort was led by the Vietnam Veterans of America, Northern New Mexico Chapter 996. Since the call for photos campaign was launched in October of 2009, about half a dozen volunteers, led by Team Leader Arturo Canales of Santa Fe, have worked tirelessly to get the job done. Last October, Canales submitted the final Mew Mexican photo of Bobby Joe Martinez of Fort Wingate. Martinez died in the Quang Tin province on May 11, 1968.

In late November, Wyoming joined New Mexico. The Wyoming effort was led by the Wyoming Veterans Memorial Museum in Casper, WY. They began in the spring of 2011 with the donation of a scrapbook by a group of Gold Star Mothers. From there, John Goss, Director of the museum and Iraq War veteran, and Vietnam veteran Franklin Weir set out to call families across the state and pound the pavement until every last photo had been found.

Over the summer, North Dakota became the third state to complete the task of finding the photos for 198 of their fallen heroes. The last photo to be submitted to VVMF’s Virtual Wall of Faces was Roland Ray of Houston, Texas, who fell in 1967. Ray’s photo has brought VVMF’s collection of photos to 38,300.

How can you get involved in the Faces Never Forgotten effort?

Submit Online

If you have a digital copy of the photograph, you can upload the photograph right onto their profile page.

Go to VVMF’s Virtual Wall of Faces and search for their name in either the “Search The Wall” bar or by using the “Advanced Search”.

Submit by Mail

Make a copy of your photo. VVMF does not want original photos and cannot be responsible for returning photos to donors. When having the photo copied, ask the photo professional to make it the highest quality possible, use a glossy finish and reproduce the photo at an 8 x 10 size, if possible. Fill out the photo submission form and package it up for mailing with the copy of the photo. When mailing, please indicate on the front of the envelope that a photo is enclosed.

Mail to: Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund

Attn: Call for Photos
2600 Virginia Avenue, NW Suite 104
Washington, D.C. 20037

Every photo submitted to VVMF is a piece of history that will be shown in the future Education Center at The Wall. And every photo collected has to be evaluated and rated to specific exhibit guidelines.

Whether you’re a volunteer, staffer, or someone who merely submitted a photo, everyone had a part in this achievement. A special congratulations to everyone involved. VVMF thanks you for your hard work and efforts in helping reach this important milestone. Please do not hesitate to be a part of this momentous effort! Learn more by visiting the VVMF wesbite.
