Did you know? on Monday 14 November, Vietnam will have their very first Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) Club?
CLAN (Caring & Living as Neighbours) is a community development based organisation committed to bringing the highest quality of life possible for all children. In November 2011, CLAN will bring together around 120 children with OI, their families and supporters to launch the first OI Club in Vietnam! Through this club, families, friends and the community will discover the best ways to ensure their children enjoy the highest quality of life possible.
Starting a new club isn't easy. Our friends in the Philippines launched their first OI club at the beginning of Wishbone Day in 2010. With the help of Rotary Club of Dee Why Warringah, Batangas Rotary and other generous friends the OI Support-Philippines was launched and is growing each day.

CLAN will bring together supporters from the National Hospital of Pediatrics (NHP) in Hanoi, Children's Hospital Westmead (CHW in Sydney, Australia), Wishbone Day and other key partners to support the launch of this Inaugural Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) Club.
Let us know if you have exciting new OI developments we can share. Because awareness makes a difference!
