Volunteer in Vietnam

After the wars have passed, regions in Vietnam are still suffering from tragic effects from the wars such as poverty, health problems, deformities, and sluggish economic growth. A huge effort and help are the most necessary things right now to give many Vietnamese a better life. Nowadays, the chance to join a volunteer in Vietnam is not limited to Vietnamese only but is also open to foreigners who want to contribute to the local community.

Where to Go for Volunteering in Vietnam

The most popular way to volunteer in Vietnam is through charity organizations. Each charity organization will focus on different objects. People give and donate their money, clothes, milk, diapers, food, etc. to charity organizations and these groups will be intermediators to transfer your donations to the people who need them most. Contact these organizations and offer to give a helping hand in their frequent philanthropic events or activities.

Some reliable charity organizations in Vietnam:

SOS children’s villages

SOS Children’s Villages are places for caring, nurturing, and supporting orphans, abandoned children, and children in difficult circumstances. These villages are built in many provinces to give greater help to children in Vietnam. In these villages, the children have a new family, they are provided a good education to build up a brighter future. However, the expenditure to run these villages is so huge that they need a lot of help from our community.

You can come to the SOS children’s villages to visit, raise money for the children or become a volunteer here.

Volunteer at religious sites in Vietnam

Many religious sites in Vietnam (temples, pagodas, and churches) run and sustain homes for disadvantaged children (orphans and children with birth defects, victims of Agent Orange); these homes are in great need of volunteers and fondly welcome visitors. Simply playing with the kids or giving small gifts like milk, toys, and rice is highly appreciated.
