Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
Vietnam is rebounding following a long history of war and suffering. However, with half the current population of 90.5 million living on less than $2 a day, and many of them on less than $1, there is still a great need for assistance for the poor, disadvantaged and disabled.
Hands-On Saigon (HOS)has been active in helping the needy in Vietnam since 1996. Their programs, in numerous provinces of Vietnam, both north and south, have focused on the needs of some of the more overlooked and disregarded people; those in remote rural areas as well as some in the centers of the busiest cities.
