Children of Vietnam Reviews
As a social worker with 30+ years of experience working with families in need, I approach nonprofits with a critical eye and expecting to see wasted resources. Children of Vietnam is the exception to the rule. This is an organization that was founded in a grass roots manner with a clearly established mission and the human resources to get the job done and done well. As they've grown into their current size, their goals remain the same, which they accomplish based on the tried and true methods established by their founder, Ben Wilson, and his staff in Danang. Dollars donated to COV are used efficiently, improving thousand's of children's lives in a setting that otherwise offers little hope for their basic needs to be met in the future. COV focuses on providing services for essentials which in the areas in and around Danang are sorely lacking.

I have worked with Children of Vietnam on Agent Orange relief efforts on numerous occasions. They are truly wonderful, dedicated, creative and meaningful organization. Few demonstrate the grit, determination and effectiveness (on a small budget) of the staff of Children of Vietnam.

I've witnessed the results first-hand. I've seen them raise 30,000+ in a single night to help disabled children in Vietnam and create a groundbreaking rehabilitative program on the ground in Da Nang.
