WWO’s work in Vietnam goes back to 2004 when we began treating orphans with HIV/AIDS and sent the volunteer pediatric AIDS specialist from Columbia University to conduct the first-ever training of Vietnamese health care professionals in that field.
That commitment has grown over the years to include WWO programs in three orphanages (two in the south; one in the north) as well as a major grant from USAID/NPI to build capacity in Vietnam for integrated social worker services in that will have a major impact on orphans and vulnerable children.
We continue to fight stigmatization of children with HIV/AIDS, including the support of a teacher to bring education to children barred from local school. Our One-to-One HRT Program further contributes to children’s integration into their communities as their “aunties” take them for trips and grow to love and understand them.
WWO Camp Colors of Love began in Vietnam in January 2008, in partnership with Serious Fun Children's Network for a residential camp experience for children from one orphanage where we work in the south. In July 2009 and June 2010, Camp Colors of Love expanded to include orphans and vulnerable children from orphanages and the community.
