John and Evelyn Billings Awards
Dr Lien On - Presented, Ho Chi Minh City, 2018
This is only the second time this Award has been offered and this time the Directors wanted to acknowledge the realization of a dream. A dream that has been so wonderfully fulfilled – 10 years of the Billings Ovulation Method® in Vietnam.
Lien On first came to Australia from Vietnam many years ago. When in Australia, she met with Drs John and Lyn Billings, and immediately became interested in their work. She became accredited as a Billings Ovulation Method® teacher and worked with the team at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne.
In 2007 Lien On approached the Directors of WOOMB International asking if we would support her to realise her dream to bring the Billings Ovulation Method to her home country of Vietnam. Supported by her wonderful husband Lien Trung and Fr James Vo Thanh Xuan, they visited Vietnam to make contacts and we all know the incredible results. Two Senior Teachers from Australia, Gillian Barker and Joan Clements then travelled with On and Trung to various parts of Vietnam twice a year for the next two years with further trips over the succeeding years.
On has kept in close contact with WOOMB Vietnam acting as the Liaison between Vietnam and the WOOMB Directors, gently guiding and supporting the realization of her dream so that 10 years later, we can see the wonderful results.
We know she will be seen as a very worthy recipient of the John and Evelyn Billings Award.
