Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. With an estimated 90.5 million inhabitants as of 2014, it is the world's 14th-most-populous country, and the eighth-most-populous Asian country. Vietnam is bordered by China to the north, Laos to the northwest, Cambodia to the southwest, and Malaysia across the South China Sea to the southeast. Its capital city has been Hanoi since the reunification of North and South Vietnam in 1975.
Center of Hope Children's Home strives to rescue and protect the children of Vietnam.
Center of Hope Children's Home is a non-profit organization that is giving care to children who are poor, abandoned, hurting, and orphaned. They work closely with the H'mong tribe and King tribe people. Most of the children taken in are from the H'mong tribe because poverty has taken their parents from them and they're left to wander the jungle alone.
Serving Orphans Worldwide travels to every orphanage we partner with to ensure needs are legitimate and 100% of funds distributed goes to the livelihood of the children.
3 prominent issues
Issues have been identified by children who have faced or escaped these struggles in their region of the world.
Most of the children in the home are found alone in the jungle because their parents have passed away. This causes them to be labeled as "Double Orphans" and they are left to try and provide for themselves.
Poverty is a huge issue when it comes to the children in Vietnam, especially among the H'mong tribe where most of the children are found alone. The tribe consists of poor farmers who can't provide for their families in any way.
Child abuse among Vietnamese children is not uncommon. Over the last few years the number of abuse cases have increased and most are even being seen in the school system. Some children are even found living in swamps or abandoned building in order to get away from the physical and emotional abuse they receive in their very own home.
The home consists of a tiny building that is too small to hold all 102 children. They are currently working and building a more appropriate sized home for all the children to enjoy. They hope that through this new building they will also be able to take more children on in the near future.
The children are provided with three meals a day. The meals usually consist of noodles, rice, vegetables, meat, and milk. Unfortunately, there is not enough funds to ensure that every child is receiving the healthy amount of protein through meat and milk. With the help of a donors support we could help change that!
The home makes sure that the children are learning about the Lord through weekly Bible studies. All children also attend church every week and really love to learn about the Bible! This is something the home feels very blessed by.
All school aged children attend public school when the funding is available. The home has currently been able to provide the funds to send the children to school, but still pray for a donor to help them so that they may be able to send even more children to learn and better their futures!
