A generous donation from Tài Lê this holiday season.
December 2011

H4VO greatly appreciates the donation of 1100 presents to be given during Christmas holiday to orphans and elders at many orphanages that we visited during previous trips from Mr. Tài Lê. Additionally, his donation is also used toward purchasing a second solar heater for Từ Hạnh orphanage this winter season.

H4VO formally added Từ Hạnh orphanage to our list of sponsored orphanages.

For the past few months, H4VO has been working with the orphanage administrators at Từ Hạnh orphanage to finalize the logistics for sponsoring the orphanage.

We are now pleased to formally welcome Từ Hạnh to our list of sponsored orphanages!

H4VO provides long-term financial committment to our sponsored orphanges to ensure the well-being of the orphans. We also receive regular reports from orphanage administrators regarding the well-being of the orphanage, and of the sponsored children.

Vietnam trip brought back photos, stories, and report of great progress.
July 2011

This past July 2011, Thắng Trần, director of H4VO, made a two-week charity trip to Vietnam with his family and three volunteers, Kathy Nguyễn, Chương Ngô, and Jessica Vũ and her young chidren. They visited H4VO-sponsored orphanages, Thiên Bình and Diệu Giác, and six other orphanages.

Some of the volunteers spent days at some orphanages playing with the children and teaching them math and English. This was not only an opportunity for everyone on the trip to bond with the children, but it was also a great way for the children to learn about H4VO at a personal level. Along with great memories and photos, they also brought back valuable information about the needs of other orphanages in the region.

Check out their trip report and view photos of the trip.

An email from Kelly Le.
April 2011

We would like to share with you an email that we recently received:

My name is Kelly Le, also known as Ai Lien. I am an orphan myself, and used to live and grow up in Dieu Giac Orphanage. However, I am more fortunate to be adopted and brought to America. I am going back to Vietnam this December and asking for donations from friends to help the orphans over there.

I admire you, and those who have good hearts to help people who less fortunate. Because of people like you, the orphans like myself have hope for a better future.
