The world we live these days no more compassion as much as the old time...cause the lifestyle, technology, greedy, natural disaster...... Remember when the 1 day we born, we have nothing in our hand and when we die will be the same. COMPASSION is the needed for everyone and sometime it's just hidden inside our heart and soul but we don't know it. Thank you BAN TAY NHAN AI (COMPASSIONATE HANDS FOUNDATION) for giving us the opportunity to help out people around us (NO MATTER what color of your skin, male, female, gay.....) we all deserve to live a better place with no harmful and people just be kind and love each other with no reason. CHILDREN,ELDER AND EVERYONE HAVE CLOTHES TO WEAR, PLACE TO LIVE AND FOOD TO EAT. NAM MO A DI DA PHAT.

Thank you, thank you and thank you to Ban Tay Nhan Ai or Compassionate Hands Foundation. You are making a difference for a better world. As I always believe that, “At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by "I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.” ― Mother Teresa

Tình cờ tôi tìm thấy video về những hoạt động thiện nguyện của Hội trên Youtube. Tôi đã rất xúc động và ấn tượng với những việc làm của Bàn Tay Nhân Ái. Chương trình đem đến không chỉ là niềm tin và chỗ dựa cho những người nghèo, người già cô đơn, trẻ em mồ côi hiếu học mà còn là những bài học cuộc sống rất thực tế cho những người như tôi. Tôi mong muốn hội Bàn Tay nhân ái tiếp tục lớn mạnh, đem tới cho nhiều người cần sự giúp đỡ hơn nữa. Xin cảm ơn Hội.

Ban Tay Nhan Ai not only gives the support and belief to the poor people, orphans and lonely elders. But also gives me lessions about life. Hopefully, Ban Tay Nhan Ai keep moving forward and successful.

Compassionate Hands Foundation is an amazing organization that does an excellent job melding experience with assisting global communities. I've been a part of many nonprofit organizations and Compassionate Hands Foundation is by far one of the most organized and thought provoking. As a volunteer and donor in both America and Vietnam, I felt well immersed and blended into the real lives of unprivileged families/people. Thank you for having me chance to experience these in the past 10 years and many more !!

I have been Ban Tay Nhan Ai's donor for four years and they have been doing great job on replying back to my concerns and payments. They also mailed us receipts every week with very details information and programs that we are sponsoring for. Giving back to the community has never that easy for me until I do with Ban Tay Nhan Ai. I hope you all keep up good works and there will be more donors willing you help you all achieve your missions. Best of luck !!

My family strongly supports Bàn Tay Nhân Ái. Through this non-profit organization, we are able to help the children, the elderly people and many more others in need to survive and receive free education in VN by sponsoring them. Thanks to Thầy Minh Nhật for leading Buddhists and volunteers in fulfilling this commitment. Let's support Chùa Quán Âm Garden Grove. Long life to our Venerable HT Thích Đạo Quang!

I am absolutely impressed by this organization. I just sponsored my first child through Ban Tay Nhan Ai. I am so excited about the various ways to communicate with her and the special section dedicated to this child where I can watch her grow and develop. I have had sponsor children for many years through another organization. With my busy schedule, I struggled to get a letter off every three months. I know how important it is to keep in touch. With Ban Tay Nhan Ai, the email or send me the mail letter option will facilitate frequent letters to my sponsor child and I can look her up on the website too. Wow! I cannot wait to get started and develop a wonderful relationship with my sponsor child and her family. Thank you for all you do for the children in Vietnam.

By far the best organization I've ever donated for. I love feeling that what I'm doing is benefitting so many children in Vietnam! They keep their overhead extremely low, believe in a holistic picture, and do so much good in our world. I sponsor a child from Vietnam and love seeing the chid's updates and how my 60.00 per year is blessing him long term. So glad the Lord brought me here.

I strongly believe that Compassionate Hands Foundation is an amazing organization! The work this organization does is truly transformative and sustainable. I am SO very glad that I have found this group! I was looking into the connection between my disabilities that are so similar to my Father's (who served in Vietnam combat) and also found out some things about my son's illnesses as well. I'm SO glad that I could help many disabled people in Vietnam. However, I really wish that the U.S Government would acknowledge that the war they created has affected us children and grandchildren as well!

There are thousands of non-profit Organizations outhere but Compassionate Hands Foundation (CHF) definitely stands out. The most importance aspect of non-profit is to help and give love directly and indirectly to the people who needs them the most. CHF have been doing that for years by fundraising and gathering donations to help needy people (largely) in Viet Nam. They're doing that everyday with compassion, you can't go wrong with that.

I have been worked with this group for 3 months, and I really enjoy doing this thing. This group helps alot of poor people each year. From the money they receive from the donators, they will provide rice, wheelchairs, and so on to unfortunate Vietnamese people. They now have a "Stop Hunger Now" event, that make more than 20 thousands meals for the ones that are hungry from Vietnam, with one goal: people will not have hunger anymore. With all the things that Ban Tay Nhan Ai has done, I think this group can help more and more unfortunate people, and I will always be here to support Ban Tay Nhan Ai
