Country: Vietnam
Duration: 2 weeks to 2 months

The residential center cares for 320 children that have Cerebral Palsy, Brady Genesis & Mental Disabilities.

Most of the children were left in hospitals and on the streets, 60% of the children here have cerebral palsy so many of them can’t walk or take care of themselves. There is simply not enough staff to care for the amount of children with such severe disabilities. On the day shift in each room there is usually 4 to 6 people taking care of 32 to 40 children on average. On night shift there is usually only 1 to 3 people working in each room.

Volunteers interested in a medical/nursing career are welcome at this center. Caretakers and volunteers feed the children, clean and take care of the children’s personal hygiene, teach the children to use utensils, use the toilets, change their clothing, and try to teach them self-reliant skills. Thanks to the staffs’ great efforts, the children and the rooms are clean and neat.
