Currently over 1,200 children in Vietnam receive sponsor support. For just $31USD per month - less than the price of a cup of coffee every day - a sponsor can make a huge difference to the life of a disadvantaged child.
Here are three stories from our Sponsorship Programme that demonstrate how lives can be changed significantly.
Hau is 26 years old. He is the eldest of two children and comes from an extremely poor family.
Hau's parents divorced when he was 9 years old and his father left Hau's mother to bring up her two children alone. The three of them lived in a tiny house in one of the many slum alleys of Ho Chi Minh City. Hau’s younger sister has Down's Syndrome and used to attend a special needs school.
Our Vietnam Sunshine Sponsorship Programme team recently completed a 3-day project visit in Ben Tre Province, around 80km south of Ho Chi Minh City at the southern tip of the Mekong River.
