The Vietnam Swans have been hosting the ANZAC Friendship Match in Vung Tau (near Saigon) since 2010. The match is used as a vehicle to “Honor lost lives; save young lives”. Funds and awareness are raised to support the local orphanage and Swim Vietnam (in Vietnam, more children die from drowning than road accidents).

For next year’s ANZAC Friendship Match in 2014, Golf Life Tours will organise tours from Australia and donate money to these two causes. For more information, click here.
