    Background: Thirteen war-injures vietnamese children -- who have been receiving treatment and job training in West Germany -- came home to an emotional welcome on Saturday (22 June).

    The children were the first of the eighty being cared for at the special last German peace village of Oberhausen to return to South Vietnam. Many of the children are orphans and some are severaly handicapped. They were sent to West Germany for medical care and rehabilitation two years ago.

    Parents and relatives met most of the children at Saigon's Tan Son Nhut airport. The next day they were flown to the medical aid centre and orthopaedic workshop at Dalat -- 200 miles north-east of Saigon -- where they will work.

    The older children received job training at Oberhausen. A doctor from Remschied, West Germany, a German master mechanic and other Vietnamese and German staff are running the Dalat centre to start with, but it is hoped that the South Vietnamese will alter take over complete.

    The centre is being paid for by the same German towns, churches and organisations that finance the Oberhausen peace village. It was completed this year. The German charity organisers hope to increase the size of the Dalat centre and eventually return all the children from Oberhausen.
