About TLF

In 1992, Tan Lam established Tu Luong Medical Mission Foundation (TLF) in honor of his mother and father Tu and Luong, respectively. Our purpose was to organizes teams of healthcare professionals, students, and other volunteers to travel and provide free medical services to Vietnamese refugees in Southeast Asia. When the last Vietnamese camp closed, TLF (501c3) reincorporated in Washington to support medical missions and education.
