Vietnam Vision Inc. was established in Australia in 2003 as a non-profit charity organisation. In 2015, a new identity, "Australian Health Humanitarian Aid (AHHA)" was established and used for overseas operations to reflect the expanded scope of Vietnam Vision Inc. charity work. In 2016, Vietnam Vision Inc. officially changed to Australian Health Humanitarian Aid Inc. (AHHA).

We provide free cataract surgery, eye care, medical and dental treatment using the technology from Australia and the skills of Australian health professional volunteers. We provide humanitarian services to relieve human suffering and improve the quality of life of those in need with compassionate acts.
