Baltrusch started on his motorbike from Schwerte on May 17 and went through Poland, Latvia, Russia, Mongolia, China and Laos before coming to Vietnam.
During his stay in Trieu Phong from, July 9-11, he plans to meet Huyen, a 13-year-old disadvantaged girl in the district. He will also visit children at a kindergarten, a junior secondary school, and children with disabilities and some families who join World Vision's activities in the district.
