Hope System of Care for Children with Disabilities
Helping children grow to their fullest potential
Children of Vietnam believes that children with disabilities have the right to grow to their fullest potential. We also believe that community involvement is essential to make this happen. Working in partnership with local authorities, Hope System of Care for Children with Disabilities (HSC) provides families with access to a full range of services. This partnership improves local capacity and also provides children with disabilities assistance in five major areas:
- Health care, rehabilitation, and nutrition
- Education and vocational training
- Sound and reliable housing, accessible to handicapped residents
- Introducing families and children to community activities and resources
Agent Orange (dioxin) is suspected to be the cause for many of the disabilities our children suffer, as well as those of many other Vietnamese. For more information on Agent Orange, click here. Or, to watch a short animated film, click here.
