There is very little that we get here that cannot be purchased in Vietnam. When we do take gifts such as toys, books, medical supplies and so on, we are generally up for ‘excess baggage’ fees. This money could be better used on the ground in Kon Tum. The best form of help is by donating money. Although ASK@VSO is not a recognized charity (yet), and 100% of donations go to the orphanages, income and expenditure is strictly accounted for and transparency is a key strategy of ASK@VSO.
Donations can be given by direct deposit into the Commonwealth Bank Vinh Son Orphanage account at BSB 064 823, account number 1080 2361.
Money can also be sent by PayPal. This is very easy. Just click on the Donate button below.
