Our family(with four adults and four kids) left Vietnam 1979 on boat and had stayed on Pulua Tengah for some months before Sweden welcomed us as quota refugees at that time.

I don’t remember exactly how long we stayed at Pulua Tengah. I send you a picture that taken when we arrived at Pulua Tengah and with our boat number.

He found his boat MT041 arrived to Tengah on May 15, 1979 in the Boatlist

Please add my boat name VNKG0602 into the boat list. I was there from 1979 to 1981. The pictures are valuable and precious. I knew persons because I had helped to fill out applications.
In pictures, there are Mr. Paul (UNHCR), anh Chau, chi Van. This website had brought back a lot of memories. Thanks.
