Each of the participating organisation creates their own financial support roadmap that utilises their connections and resources most efficiently. Support also vary depending on family circumstances.


All of the organisations have scholarship programmes in place to support children in the long term and make sure that they are not alone in their education path.


Having years of experience in working with disadvantaged children across Vietnam, the organisations have the capacity needed to provide counselling, guidance, and long-term psychological support that are vital to the orphans after the trauma.

All children deserve the opportunity to grow in safe, stable, and loved conditions. The ” You are not alone” campaign provides children with the financial and emotional support to heal the emotional wounds of losing their parents. Although we will never be able to help completely heal the wounds of their past, we have the opportunity to aid in the development and success of their futures.​

A close friend of mine lost her mother to COVID. At age 25, this tragedy is still so hard for her to overcome. That's why when I heard about the number of new orphans in HCMC because of COVID, I couldn't stop thinking about them. No amount of help can erase their pain, but at least, by reaching out to them, we can let them know that they are not alone, and will be supported to learn and develop.
