Peter’s Clinic Story
Peter’s Clinic is a non-profit organization dedicated to the memory of Peter Pham, a 22 year old Vietnamese-American who passed away in a traffic accident in Austin, TX, in 2010.
Peter’s dream was to study medicine in the United States, and then establish a clinic in rural Vietnam from which he could provide basic medical care and health education for the poor, disadvantaged, and often abandoned children and young people of that country.
Upon his death, Peter’s family organized Peter’s Clinic to keep that dream alive and bring it to reality.
The mission of Peter’s Clinic is to raise funds to build, equip, staff and operate medical clinics in the southern region of Vietnam.
This project is undertaken in cooperation with the Dominican Sisters of Our Lady of the Rosary, Lang Song, Vietnam. The Dominican sisters have agreed that the finished facilities should be named “Peter’s Clinic,” remembering and keeping Peter’s dream alive.
[In honor and remembrance of Quynh Pham]
Members of Peter’s family made up the Board of Directors for the clinic; Quynh Pham, Peter’s cousin, was the secretary of the non-profit for two years. At the age of 21, she passed away in a sudden and painful accident in April of 2012. Quynh was studying to become a nurse, and she was planning on working in the clinics supplied by Peter’s Clinic.
We shall provide international quality medical aid to patients in rural and forgotten areas of the world – beginning with Vietnam.
