Recent projects

Due to the limited funding, the orphanages, social centers and schools in our program have been going without enough care, medical and educational services.
1-World Charity Shops is an Australian charity registered under the Australian Charities and Not-For – Profits Commission ( the ACNC is the national charity regulator for all charities located through Australia). 1- World Charity Shops operates to support local and oversea community based organizations by promoting clothing recycling within Australia and overseas.
Since 2014, Volunteer Vietnam and 1-World Charity Shops have established a partnership which 1-World becomes our majored sponsor to support our work in Vietnam. Together, we think that “ Step By Step We can make a difference” to the vulnerable people under our case.
Here are some recent projects:


Extra nutrition and food

Due to the limited funding, the orphanages and social center have been going without enough food and nutrition. This has caused many malnutrition cases. We have spent VND 16,500,000 on buying extra food and nutrition such as fruits, milks, vegetable for the past few months. This is a successful addition to the daily meals for the children and elderly people and helps them remain in a good health.
New fence and gates for Red Cross Orphanage
It has been unsafe to the kids at Da Nang Red Cross orphanage as the fence and gates were very old and broken. It has hurt many of them while playing in the front yards. We have been able to build the new fence and gates for the orphanage and bring a safe playing area for 24 kids at this orphanage. This cost VND 27,000,000.
Step By Step room development
There is a great need for further equipping the physiotherapy rooms “ Step By Step” to make it more functional and serve more patient cases. We have been able to purchase more equipment and supplies for this facilities such as: chairs, tables, physio pillows, mattress, fans and supplies for bathroom, toilets, etc..The facilities has become our heart inside Da Nang Social Center and serve around 20 disabled patients at this center. This project costs VND 14,200,000
New washing area for elderly people
25 oldest and most disabled people at Da Nang Social live in a building without proper bathroom and washing area. In June, Ms Anouk Woudstra who is a volunteer in our program fundraised to build a new washing area for these people. During the construction, there was a need for additional fund to complete the project. We have spent VND 5,000,000 as the additional fund to this project. A new washing has been built and it has been benefitting the people here a lot.
Outing trips for children and old people
To improve the quality of life for the children at the orphanages and social center, it is necessary to take them out to the community for entertainment and freedom. We have been able to take 20 children at Da Nang Social Center to a swimming pool and give many children physiotherapy activities in the water. Also we are again able to take the kids at Da Nang Red Cross orphanage to an entertainment center where they can play some educational games and have some ice cream.
