      She is Vietnamese and a survivor of the Viet Nam war. She has been
      the victim of all the horrors of that war, both reported and
      unreported, for most of her life.

      Le Ly Hayslip has every right to be bitter, but she has forgiven her
      enemies and moved forward to help others rebuild their shattered
      lives. Le Ly is a woman who is making a difference in the United
      States and in her homeland.

      In 1988, Le Ly Hayslip founded the "East Meets West Foundation", a
      humanitarian relief organization, which physically and emotionally
      helps to rebuild lives on both sides of the world.

      Her book, "When Heaven and Earth Changed Places", moved award
      winning filmmaker, Oliver Stone, a Vietnam veteran himself, to fund
      the building of Mother's Love Clinic for homeless children in Le
      Ly's village in Da Nang. With the further help from actor-comedian,
      Robert Kline and Senator John Kerry, money has been raised to build
      Peace Village, a medical center for children. Oliver Stone will soon
      be producing a film about the humanity of Le Ly Hayslip.

      In her genuine concern to help heal the emotional wounds of many
      Americans who fought that bloody war in Vietnam, Le Ly, acts as
      confessor to those who left Vietnam with overwhelming guilt. She
      strives to bring peace of mind to many brave warriors, who have
      grieved for too long Ä many at the expense of their jobs, homes and
      families.

      Le Ly encourages many of these former fighters to return to Vietnam
      to build schools and medical facilities for children, women and the
      disabled. She knows that positive action, heals old wounds. New
      buildings are being constructed everyday by returning Americans.

      The Brochure for East Meets West says "Working Together to Heal the
      Wounds of War."

      Le Ly's Living Legacy is a blessing on two continents. She is giving
      children a chance at life in her own country and she is giving our
      brave and badly treated soldiers their chance for healing. Thank you
      Le Ly for leading the way.
