Vietnam Orphanage Project

Hi everyone! As some of you know, I recently booked my volunteer trip to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), where I’ll be working at a childcare/special needs center from early May to the end of June. Most of the kids I’ll be working with have been disabled by Agent Orange, a herbicide used in the Vietnam War that continues to affect the people of north and south Vietnam.
Until I leave, I’ll be raising funds to help provide for the kids I'll be working with. Some of the items I will purchase in Vietnam for these kids, as requested by the staff at the centre I'm working at, include:
■ Antibiotics, antiseptics
■ Vitamins, calcium tablets
■ Bedding
■ Mosquito nets
■ Crutches, leg braces
■ First aid kits
■ Children’s clothing
■ Balloons
■ Bubble solution
■ Face paint
■ Musical instruments
■ Group games such as Bingo, Snakes and Ladders, Twister, etc.
■ Colored paper
■ Markers/crayons
■ Colored pavement chalk
■ Outdoor game equipment
Though I will not be purchasing any of these items until I arrive in Vietnam (cheaper consumer goods and stimulation of the Vietnamese economy), 100% of your donation will go to these children; your donation is collected by my volunteer organization, IVHQ, who will then monitor my spending. Because consumer goods in Vietnam are very cheap, ANY donation will be well-received in Vietnam, and could truly change the lives of some of the children I'll be working with, who rely entirely on donations and volunteers. I hope that you choose to donate to my cause; it would mean the world to me and the kids in Vietnam. Thanks :)
PS: if you're interested in the program I'll be working on, here's the link to IVHQ. I'll be volunteering for the "special needs/childcare" program.
