Hello Vinfen Community,
I hope this message finds you and your family safe and well. Now that we are a couple of months into 2021, I can’t help but reﬂect on this unprecedented year. 2020 challenged us all in unimaginable ways, but I am so proud of how we have persevered and the amazing things we have achieved together. I want to take a moment to share these achievements with you, our valued Vinfen partners, stakeholders, and supporters.
As you know, Vinfen’s greatest asset and most impactful investment is our dedicated and committed staff. This basic principal has guided our decision-making, investment, and advocacy more than ever this year. From the start of the pandemic, we advocated aggressively with our funders and in partnership with The Caring Force to secure PPE, testing, and early access to vaccines for our staff and the people we serve.
Vinfen has so much to be proud of this year and we are eternally grateful to our staff for their commitment, resiliency, creativity, and endurance. They are what makes Vinfen truly great.
We begin this new year with hope, urgency, and resolve. Never has our collective health, wellbeing, safety, and success been so interconnected. Please remain vigilant, get vaccinated when it is your turn, continue to wear PPE, and care for each other.
Thank you for your continued support of Vinfen.

President and Chief Executive Officer
