Vinh Long Orphanage

Vinh Long Orphanage is located in the province of Vinh Long, approximately three hours southwest of Ho Chi Minh city. It is operated within the Social Protection Center, situated in an old abandoned prison. There are 33 orphaned children ranging between infants under one year to 14 years of age.

Because this orphanage is remote, the children do not get many visitors and hence, can lack the human connection that brings joy to a child’s day

February 2017 Each time we visit Vinh Long orphanage, the children are a little bigger, more clever and ever so adorable. Although they are well cared for, we know by the way they cling to us when we try to leave that these children long for something more beyond their walls.

Thank you!
We are so grateful for your support at our 4th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 24th. Together, we raised over $45,000 for the Children of Vietnam Benevolent Foundation! It brings us great joy to know that we can continue helping more children go to school, grant more scholarships, buy more beds, deliver more playground equipment, supply more books/pencils, bicycles, wheelchairs, hearing aids, possibly help build another school and so much more! It was not a small feat this year as we staged the first ever full capacity banquet dedicated to authentic Vietnamese Cuisine, something that is rarely if ever done anywhere in Canada. It took a powerhouse team of talented chefs, dedicated volunteers, generous businesses, and beautiful guests to make the night an incredible success. We thank you!

On Sale Now for $30 (plus shipping) each! 100% of the proceeds are dedicated to helping the children of Vietnam. Please email us if you're interested. We thank you for your support.
