The children residing at the center are all disabled children (hearing problems, paralytic, mental deficiencies) and came from extreme improvised backgrounds. Their family does not have the financial ability to care and meet the special needs of the child; hence the government implemented a center to help these children. Their budget is limited and wasn't able to provide uniforms, which are required to attend school, or bikes which cause the children to walk up to 9 miles each way, everyday.
2/ Khanh Hoa Social Protection - Khanh Hoa Social Protection Center has 104 children in total and 187 homeless elderly people. The orphanage is part of the Khanh Hoa Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs. The budget for the orphanage is extremely limited and does not allow for upkeep, renovation or upgrades to the facilities. Additionally, the center is short of many items, making it difficult to full meet the needs of the children. This center requested we assist them in providing shoes, playground equipment and a buffet for the children.
3/ Cam Ranh House of Love Orphanage - The center was founded in 1995 by a group of Catholic Sisters serving in Cam Ranh. It is a nongovernmental organization that receives its funding from donors such as Brittany's Hope Foundation. In 2005, BHF became the HOL's main supporter, we provided funds to renovate the center (a new kitchen, fixed a leaky roof, built flood walls for the rainy season, installed water purifying system, and expansion of living quarters for children). In addition BHF provides sponsorship of all children residing at the HOL.

Christina Noble Children’s Foundation
Address: 38 Tu Xuong Street, Ward 7, District 3, Ho Chi Minh City
Tel: (+84) 893 22 738
The children’s foundation was established in 1989 by Christina Noble – an Irish women who lived with an unhappy childhood of the separation from their family. Spending many years at her orphanage was also one of the reasons why she decided to bring the home for orphanages and abandoned children. During the time of war in Vietnam, she had saw too much about this country in the news and realized that Vietnamese children were seemingly imploring her to take them from napalm bombings to safety. Eventually, she arrived in Vietnam and set up the center with various programs which give the brighter future to thousands of unlucky children. These are the programs regarding health care, education, and community development.

The center's goal is to provide the students with adequate shelter as well as education/vocational training to aid these students in becoming productive members of society. The education this center provides is tailored to the special needs of the students. Presently, the center has 30 vision impaired students with the age range of 5 to 20 years old (all girls).
