IPSAC-VN isn’t the only healthcare related organization that Dr. Holterman actively takes an interest to. The Children’s Surgery International (CSI), runs the Blossom House, which helps foster orphaned Vietnamese girls between 5 and 18 years old. CSI offers holistic healing for these girls and for those born into extreme poverty. However, this non-profit organization provides surgeries and other healthcare related services for children around the world.

After seeing the cramped conditions of hospitals in Vietnam, he hopes to use the endeavors of IPSAC-VN to help improve healthcare for the children of Vietnam (MarkHolterman.WordPress). This improved healthcare system is achieved by bringing advanced medical technology and training to the hospitals and Medical Schools in Vietnam, but it doesn’t stop there as medical technology is ever changing.
