VIVIAN SLOT FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS IN THAILAND
Who was Vivian ? Vivian Kristina Aimee Slot was a three-year old girl who tragically lost her life in Thailand during the Tsunami disaster on December 26, 2004 “A child of the World” The “Vivian Scholarship Foundation” [VSF] was set up in Vivian’s name, to help young medical doctors in rural Thailand. At first money was contributed by friends and various charity groups in Singapore and Hong Kong, but since 2010, Credit Lyonnais Securities Asia Chairman’s Trust, [CLSA], has become a major contributor, allowing the number of recipients each year to grow. Money is contributed only to those students, who come from a lower economic background and whose families need extra assistance to enable their daughters and sons to achieve their goals and to ultimately return to their own communities. The benefits this now adds to Rural Thailand is huge.
