|Vietventures/Vietnam information guide is pleased to present below a list of various Vietnam charities, which in our opinion have shown the kind of integrity that we've felt good enough to give free space to on our website. Despite the rapid growth of Vietnam's economy and changes to it's fundamental structure over the years, much remains to be done in order to help everyday people who thru no fault of their own find themselves to be in a less than adequate life. Did you know there are still hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese babies born every year with physical and mental defects directly attributed to the dropping of large quantities of chemicals (Agent Orange) during the Vietnam war? It's true and this monumental chemical pollution which has been essentially disregarded by the people who ordered this crime against humanity did I fact pollute the water table and to this day, babies are born with severe physical and metal defects which in essence has condemned these poor kids of a life of hardship to which they have no one to rely on for life's sustenance except for the good people who show their care by making donations of money, time and effort, both in Vietnam as well as the USA and the rest of the world.
|Below you will find links to groups and organizations, which go the extra mile in helping the people who need it most. Won't you give just a little?
|For those of you who want to get more personally involved, we will accept donations which we will personally send to the people in these orphanages and if your donation is large enough, we will (at your cost) provide you with photos of the actual foods, medicines, books, computers, and all other life's essentials along with the people who actually distribute them.
My wife and I have zero tolerance for so called "non profit groups" to which only a small percentage of Vietnam donations actually reach the people. Hence this highly personal service is available to good people who wish to make direct contributions and have us handle the actual procedure. Please bear in mind that everything costs money in this world and therefore we will not respond to generic emails. But if you want to be involved substantively, then contact us here, or better yet, fill out the order form with your payment and in the special notes section, tell us where ( only available in South Vietnam at this time) you want this money to go and in what form.
|Cam On! (Thank you)

|Vietventures Personal Vietnam Donations
click order form.
Enter amount and in special notes, write what you would like to provide and to whom. Donations under $500.00 will go into special pool and you WILL receive a confirmation when donations ( food, medicine, English learning books and instructions, medical services, blankets, toys for the kids and all other essentials) are distributed detailing where they've been given and what was provided. For an extra $50.00 USD, we will provide you with actual photos and if you so desire, also allow your name and address be known to the orphanage or actual persons receiving your donation so they can send you a letter of thanks. Due to the costs of our personal efforts in this, be advised that 90% of your donation WILL get to the people. The other 10% helps us defray our costs of administering these donations.
|Vietnam Information Guide ( Vietventures.com) is pleased to showcase below a number of Vietnam charitable organizations that we feel deserve a second look from people who are interested in working in Vietnam, or who are interested in lending a helping hand thru charitable contributions or with your time. As time goes on you will notice one or more "stars"(*) next to these listings, or a question mark ( ? ). The stars mean that we have personally spent some of our time in researching these Vietnam charities, with more than one star denoting our opinion that that specific charitable organization is doing good things in Vietnam. A question mark denotes our opinion that what this specific organization is doing is questionable to us and could eventually be eliminated from our list.
Eventually, you will also see a button or banner link to specific charitable organizations. This does not necessarily mean that these organizations have paid for this placement. On the contrary, if we place a button or banner on this website for a Vietnam charity it is because we are quite impressed with what this specific Vietnam charity is doing and are doing our part to illuminate them.
We hope you will find it in your heart to help out in Vietnam.
