Renovating a center for Agent Orange victims

luxury family trip philanthropic volunteering

Agent Orange was the chemical used extensively during the Vietnam War, and it still causes damage through birth defects, even down to the 3rd generation.

A community exists to care for these precious children born with mental and physical developmental issues, and you can help beautify their environment by renovating needed rooms.

This village provides a home for over 130 children and young adults from 2 to 23 years old. The children suffer from a whole range of symptoms, including mental underdevelopment, or stunted or deformed limbs and spines. Most of them are unable to walk, speak or read and some are not even able to respond to their own names, but their warmth and genuineness will touch your heart.

The village has four main functions, including giving care, treatment, compulsory primary degree of education by special program, and vocational training to disabled children, such as sewing, embroidery and computer skills. There are 4 primary classes, 7 physical rehabilitation rooms and 2 vocational training rooms with 52 staff. The village receives financial support from the government as well as international organisations. However, its infrastructure has degraded considerably due to no renovations for a long time.

Their main needs are renovations, gardening, painting, cleaning and maintenance of the rooms. If you feel up to it, you can also help teach English, computer skills, art, music or dance.
