Stories

Children who needs your sponsorship are those who have lost parental care, some have never even had a family.
At SOS Children Villages Vietnam, over 5,900 orphans, abandoned children and children under difficulties have been adopted into substitute families with a MOTHER, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, a HOME and a VILLAGE and growing up naturally like in any other family.
These children need your hep. For each child, your sponsorship means being able to grow within a new family who loves him and accompanied him until he becomes an independent and helpful citizen. Each of them has a story to tell.

"Welcome little angle to Thai Binh SOS Children's Village! Being left in front of the village in a rainy early morning, you now have a new home with loving mom, brothers & sisters, and a village to grow up with love, security and respect!
We will try our best to keep these smiles along your childhood in SOS Children's Villages.
Love you, always!"

"I joined SOS Children's Village in 1993, it's the most important turning point of my life. From a luckless boy, I then got back all my hopes and future. I am now Import/Export Manager in a US company. I got married to a great woman and have a small cute daughter. My family always try our best to let the girl visit her grand-mother as often as possible."

"My mother is a great cook and crafter. I am really lucky to be her child, there are so much I could learn from her. I learnt how to knit garments for winter, keep the house tidy and decor it for Tet holidays, as well as how to talk nicely with everyone and how to behave with love to my brothers and sisters."

"I'm living in Viet Tri SOS Children's Village with mother, brothers and sisters. I love going to school, and I have a lot of friends there. Sometimes, I stayed a little late after school just to have fun and play football with my friends."

Testimonials

"I have been sponsoring 10 children in the same family at SOS Children's Village Go Vap for 3 years. Glad that I could see these misfurtune kids are receiving good care, behave well and study hard for an independent life in the future. Sponsoring is a nice way for me and my family to share our luck with SOS children and contribute to society."

Kindly consult the child's mother, aunt, education staff, village director or any other direct supervisor before giving it to the child, and be prepared if we may not allow the child to take it. Let's think for our children and protect them from unneccessarily negative inputs from gifts.
