Empowering people.

Breaking the cycle.

WHAT WE DO

Despite considerable development success, poverty in Vietnam continues to be widespread. Equalizing the gap between income and opportunity, especially in rural areas, remains the biggest challenge for the country’s development as a whole.

At Humanitarian Services for Children of Vietnam, it’s our mission to provide a future for Vietnamese children living in abject poverty. We provide specialized support through our many programs ensuring these children get proper access to food, education and medicine.

Founded in 2002, HSCV is located in Hanoi. Our diverse programs reach out to children, women and families suffering both within the city and in the provinces surrounding Hanoi. We have a support team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, comprising of our board of directors and working volunteers that actively work on fundraising, marketing and providing direction to the team in Vietnam. Together we aim to bring immediate assistance to children in urgent need of help, but also invest in breaking the persistent cycle of poverty.

WHO WE ARE

In 2001 Chuck De Vet and his daughter Annetta took an “adventure vacation” to Vietnam. After seeing the needs there they decided to start an organization to assist needy children and their families. They learned that although there were plenty of children in need throughout the country, there were far fewer charitable organizations operating in the northern section of the country when compared to the south or central. HSCV was incorporated as a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation in 2002. Since then the team has grown considerably.

MEET THE TEAM

HSCV team members have a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.  We work in unity towards the common goal of assisting children, women and families in need in Vietnam. We strive to insure that every dollar is spent wisely and with purpose to produce the maximum benefit for the children.
