During the time between college and grad school, Tammy Nguyen Lee began volunteering with the Vietnamese community in Dallas. At the time, she helped with the production of a play commemorating the 25th anniversary of the fall of Saigon. The play had something about Operation Babylift.
Nguyen Lee wanted to know more.
“I think why I was originally attracted to it was the fairy tale of what it seemed to be,” she says.
The adoption of thousands of orphans from Vietnam during Operation Babylift seemed like a story of humanitarians joining together to help people. And it was nice to find something so positive.
Thank you for supporting the Dallas premiere of Operation Babylift: The Lost Children of Vietnam and our 2nd Annual Cocktails for a Cause reception/fundraiser, benefiting orphanages in Vietnam. We had a standing room only crowd at the Dallas Museum or Art and with your help, reached our fundraising goal!
Come support us, as we take Operation Babylift on the road. Check out more screenings of the award-winning documentary at festivals around the country.
