DAY 5 – Tuesday 27th October 2015 – American Club with Ambassador of the USA and RSA
After a meeting with the Vietnamese Government Biodiversity Conservation Agency, next on the agenda was a meeting over lunch with our very own South African Ambassador to Vietnam, Kgomotso Ruth Magau – absolutely privileged!
Thereafter, Ambassador Magau accompanied the team to the American Club where the team engaged with fellow Vietnamese students and delivered another ‘SHOUT OUT” with all present.
Amabassador Magau made her voice heard by placing her footprint on the cloth as part of the 1,000,000 Footprints to Save Africa Campaign.
The Rhino Ambassadors handed the Declaration book to Mr. Vu Minh Ly, Director of National Volunteer Center, Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union with Ambassador Osius and South African Ambassador Kgomotso Ruth Magau as witnesses. The participants were divided into groups to participate in different activities, including placing their footprints, Rhino Art painting, Rhino origami, discussion groups.
The day ended with a show by the South African cultural contingent and a “SHOUT OUT”. The event was covered by media from all over the world.
A tired but elated Team attended dinner at the home of the US DCI, Susan Sutton, where they were able to relax a bit and enjoy a swim in her swimming pool.
