Dear Diary

Written by

For the second year running, a photographic diary dedicated to the women of Vietnam has been published.

Photographers such as Peter Stuckings, Sue Wise and Nicole Vooijs have all contributed various images to the 100-glossy page Women in Vietnam diary, which captures urban and rural women making their many contributions to the country.

All profits from the sale of the diary will go to the non-profit organisation, Vietnam Quilts, which provides employment and opportunities to women in numerous poor rural areas in Vietnam.
