Every year, donors like you help Holt's programs provide life-changing support for children and families in Vietnam who are most in need.
While economic reforms since the Vietnam War have led to greater prosperity for many people, great disparities exist between rich and poor, rural and urban, and ethnic majority and minority families.... Rural families often migrate to cities in search of work, putting children at risk of family separation, trafficking and exploitation. High rates of HIV/AIDS and the enduring stigma toward single mothers also threaten the stability of families.
Together with donors like you, Holt strives to ensure every vulnerable child in Vietnam can thrive in the love of family. For children who can not be with their birth family, Holt introduced foster care as a more nurturing alternative to childcare institutions. We also work alongside orphanage partners to ensure standards of care in nutrition, medical support and education until children can be reunited with their family or join a loving family through adoption.
