Review for VinaCapital Foundation, Ho Chi Minh City, , Vietnam

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked as an intern/volunteer at Vina Capital Foundation for 5 weeks. In the end, I must say that this is the best summer I have had in a long time. I got to know VCF through my sister who has fund raised for them before at her school; she praised them for their good work ethics, professionalism as well as the major impact they have made by saving thousands of children in Vietnam. I testify that they do live up to the praise and my experience here was immensely educational and exciting. I felt very welcomed as a new volunteer by all VCF members; they were here to help me whenever needed all along and they taught me all the useful skills I came to learn. Contrasting to the expectation of a cold and distant corporate world, VCF feels more like a family to me as every member was so incredibly friendly, kind and dedicated to their humanitarian work. My supervisor and manager turned into mentors and the fellow volunteers turned into friends. We had the chance to visit a patient assisted by VCF from Lam Dong at Tam Duc hospital; it was very heart warming and truly showed me how much VCF's help meant to thousands of poor families all over the country who aren't able to afford life changing surgeries for their young children. After seeing a sick child being given a normal life and a stable future, I was truly inspired and humbled by VCF's work. I recommend this charity to everyone, as every person who contributes, whether a donor or volunteer or employee, will keep the organisation going and many more children can be saved. I truly hope I can continue to assist them next summer and will be supporting their good cause in the long term.
