Giving It Back to Kids
May 1, 2011

My wife and I started supporting GIBTK about 8 years ago. At first we felt this organization would give immediate help to needy children of Vietnam, preventing hunger, offering needed corrective surgeries and building safe homes. But this organization goes far beyond triage and stands out from others by building long term relationships. Children are not only given needed medical and nutritional support but are shown love and concern for their future as leaders in a ever changing Vietnam. I had the opportunity to travel to Vietnam in 2006 with Robert Kalatschan and see first hand the life changing work being done there by GIBTK. We followed up with children who had previous orthopedic and life saving surgeries, visited families who had new homes built for them and stayed in touch with children at the orphanages. I'll never forget the kids lining up for hugs at the orphanages. Recently, my wife and I have the privilege of supporting a young man in his college studies. We are proud to be a part of Giving It Back To Kids.
