I have nothing but good things to say about Pearl S. Buck International. I have visited several times, and I am always impressed by the organization's dedication to the memory of Pearl S. Buck, to keeping her words and values alive. In continuing Pearl's mission of helping the underprivileged children of the world, they are truly doing their part to make this world a better and more humane place for all of us. I am sponsoring a child in a Vietnamese orphanage, and it brings me joy to see her flourish under the program.

I visited the Pearl S Buck’s house in Pennsylvania and was struck by the passion she had for the plight of children around the world. Through her novels she gave a voice to millions of peasants in China and reminded readers of their humanity. The volunteers at the house impressed upon the visitors the importance of preserving the history and legacy of Pearl S Buck. This legacy continues through her charitable foundation, Pearl S Buck International, which helps children across Eastern Asia get access to vital services like education.
