Review for Giving It Back to Kids, Huntington Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a 16 year old high school student and was fortunate enough to go to Vietnam with this amazing non-profit organization. Robert, from Giving it Back to Kids gave me the opportunity to carry out my Eagle Scout Project in Vietnam where I assembled and distributed 50 wheelchairs to the community. Even two of the children from the orphange helped out and had such a great time.

On our mission we spent the night at an orphanage where we played soccer, frisbee, jump rope, and even some of the games the kids had made up themselves. The children at the orphange really brought me to realize how lucky I am to be living in a place where I do not have to worry if I will be eating later that day or become terribly sick.

Overall my experience in Vietnam was life changing. Giving it Back to Kids is a wonderful organization and has helped many children by paying for the heart and orthopedic surguries they cannot afford. I would love to go back to Vietnam and see all of the kids again because after seeing the tears in their eyes as we were leaving, there is no way how i could not go back.

Role:  Volunteer & Assembled and distributed 50 wheel chairs, spent time at the different orphanges, visited children at hospitals.
