ACCV - Child Sponsorship Program...

Over the past few months we have spent time with many families in dire need of assistance. Some of them are desperate to provide their children with basic nutrition or education, others are so poor that the medication necessary to keep their child healthy, or even alive, is beyond their means.
At times the situation was quite unfathomable. We met with a young father who had spent twelve hours on a rural bus with his unconscious four year old son. The child is diabetic, and his parents simply didn’t have enough money for both food and insulin.

Another family had sold off everything of value to try and pay for their child’s medical treatment, they are now in debt and they cannot afford the ongoing medical costs.
 There are many, many stories of families living in poverty who need support to give their children the basics in life. For any child to reach their potential they need nutrition, medical care and education. It is with this goal in mind that we have decided to launch;
ACCV – Christine Edith Sponsorship Program.
A simple donation will go into a central fund to meet the expenses of all disadvantaged children in the program. 

Individual sponsorship will directly support a child and the sponsor will receive a child’s profile, photograph and updates.

At this point we have fifty children we have agreed to support.  In the hospital alone, there are another 170 children waiting for our assistance, many others are waiting for educational opportunities. 

We hope to offer them support once we have adequate sponsors and funding. We’re trying not to bite off more than we can chew!
 At this point we have three forms of sponsorship available:

a) $30.00 per month:

Will support a primary school child’s education and basic needs.

Will support a chronically ill child requiring daily medication to sustain a healthy life. 

Nutritional and transportation funding will also be provided when necessary.


b) $50.00 per month

Will support a teenager through their senior high school and university education.

Will support a seriously ill child requiring hospitalization for treatments for cancer, heart  disease and    
other serious illnesses.

Nutritional and transportation funding will also be provided when necessary.
      $30.00 per month

c) Individual donation to our general funds
We work on an individual, as needs basis and this will not change for children registered in our sponsorship program.    

When families need additional support this will be financed from our general funds.

 Your sponsorship can make a huge difference in the life of a child and their family. If you are interested in  sponsoring a child, please Sign up with ACCV

Please remember that 100% of donations received  by ACCV go directly to help the children of Vietnam.

Once again we would like to thank you for your ongoing support.
Kind regards
