The French singer that is well known in France visited Vietnam’s biggest city during four days. Poussieres de vie organized a Charity Gala dinner at the French Embassy in order to enable the city’s people to meet her before the concert but also to raise funds for the NGO.

On June 6th  2017,  Joyce Jonathan gave a concert at the Ben Thanh theater in Ho Chi Minh where the 500 present spectators were all thrilled.

She also visited PointCom,  Poussieres de Vie’s school for the city’s street children, a visit that really touched her, as she said it herself: “ I have been touched by this encounter. Their courage and resolution to face adversity is admirable. It’s a real life lesson!”  (From the ParisMatch interview).
