Vietnam's 'children of Agent Orange'

Vietnam's 'children of Agent Orange'

The Vietnam War ended nearly 40 years ago, but the casualties continue as birth defects plague the country.

 

There are claims that thousands of children continue to be born with horrific facial deformities due to the 20 million gallons of Agent Orange chemical sprayed by the United States.

 

The Vietnamese call the disfigured youngsters 'the children of Agent Orange'.

 

Inside Out's Mark Jordan joins a team of top London plastic surgeons on their unpaid mission to help these deformed children to 'Face the World'.
