What we provide
CRPCV provides education, food, shelter, and emergency relief to
poverty-stricken children and orphans in Vietnam.
Education: Relief efforts center on enabling poor
children to attend schools located in the remote villages of Central
Vietnam free of charge. CRPCV projects provide these children with the
basic ability to read, write and understand simple mathematics. With
this knowledge, the children will eventually be able to learn different
occupations so that they can both support themselves and help support
Each school has approximately twenty-five to
forty-five students between the ages of four and seventeen. The
schoolhouses are thatched huts built with mud. Since the region is
frequently hit by natural disasters such as typhoons and floods,
schools are often totally destroyed and must be rebuilt from scratch.
CRPCV assists in paying necessary construction costs incurred. CRPCV
also contributes to the construction of more permanent schools.
Food: CRPCV provides hot
lunches to children who attend the schools. Without these lunches, the
children will only have one meal a day because that is all their
parents can afford to feed them. The hot lunches consist of rice, tofu,
beans, and other vegetables that satisfy the children's minimum
Shelter: As a long-term
project, CRPCV plans to provide funding to build an orphanage in the
village of Ha Trung, Vietnam. Presently, the orphans live in local
Buddhist temples, which do not have enough room for them.
Emergency Relief: CRPCV also provides relief to
the children in cases of emergency, such as typhoons, floods, or
extreme sickness. This includes supplies of rice and other ready-to-eat
foods, and funds for the building and rebuilding of bridges that the
children must cross in order to attend school. CRPCV finances medical
teams that visit the schools and treat the children for common
return to top
How we operate
CRPCV works in conjunction with the Quang Tri Charitable Organization,
an independent, non-profit relief agency that serves poor villages in
Central Vietnam. The Quang Tri Charitable Organization is formed and
operated by monks, nuns, and lay persons serving on a voluntary basis.
The organization is not affiliated with the government of Vietnam or
any other governmental entity. Because both the Quang Tri Charitable
Organization and CRPCV are operated by volunteers, only a negligible
portion of funds are used for administrative purposes.
All contributions that CRPCV receives are forwarded to
the Quang Tri Charitable Organization, which uses every dollar to
provide education, food and shelter to children who live in very poor,
remote villages. Through the social workers who serve the Quang Tri
Charitable Organization, CRPCV is kept informed of the conditions and
progress of the children who receive assistance. Once or twice a year,
the children write thank-you messages to CRPCV and to individual
sponsors in the United States.
How you can help
Each five dollar contribution provides schooling and a
hot lunch for one month for a village child. A contribution of $60.00US
will help a child for a year. All contributions are tax deductible. You
can help by sponsoring one or more children. Please fill out the
