Income generation - in association with the Vietnam Red Cross and the Viet Nam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin WLP is helping families with disabled children, including those believe to be affected by Agent Orange, to increase their income.

Funds received in memory of Bob Feldman, a US Vietnam war veteran who died of lymphoma, WLP and the Red Cross helped improve the livelihood of 150 families in Quang Nam, Quang Ngai and Dong Nai provinces in 2007and 47 families in Quang Nam province in 2009 and 56 families in 2010. We expect to provide support for an additional 75 families in 2011 through the Feldman Fund and through other individual donations.

Your contribution will help WLP in its work to increase the annual income of poor families with disabled children who earn less than $20/month.

Home construction -  in association with the Viet Nam Red Cross WLP helps renovate or construct homes for poor families with severely disabled children. Funds donated in memory of Bob Feldman have built or renovated  homes in Quang Nam, Quang Ngai and Dong Nai provinces.

Your donation will help WLP to construct and renovate more homes for the poor and disabled in Vietnam. A new home such as the one picture above costs about $2000 to construct.

Gia Dinh SchoolAutism Teacher Training Program WLP has been working with the Gia Dinh Special School in HCM City that teaches children with autism and as well as children with other developmental disabilities. We have an opportunity to send two of the Gia Dinh School teachers that work with children with autism to the Morgan Center for Autism in San Jose, CA for a short-term training program starting in September. There they will learn new techniques and tools that are effective in working with children with autism and will adapt what they learn when they return to Vietnam. Your donation will help support the cost of their training and to hold workshops in Vietnam upon their return to train other teachers.

Support for Surgeries  - in association with the Hue Medical School and the Office of Genetic Counseling and Disabled Children we are supporting the cost of surgeries and medical care for children with congenital heart defects, cleft palate, club foot and other surgically correctible conditions.  To date most of these surgeries have been supported by funds donated in memory of Chris Jenkins, a former International Voluntary Services volunteer to Viet Nam from who died in 2003. Any level of donation will help change the live of a child in need of life saving or live changing surgery.
