In Vietnam there are nearly 5.5 million children and youth living in hardship, who “experience at least two deprivations in education, health, nutrition, shelter, water and sanitation, or social inclusion.” (UNICEF report 2023). Since 2004, Worldwide Orphans in Vietnam has served more than 35,000 children and youth across the country, 75% of them have Adverse Childhood Experiences or recurring trauma due to the lack of access to social support and legal protection. 60% of them live with a serious disease, or developmental disorders. All of them live in low-income households or in orphanages/shelters. The correlation between their physical and mental health challenges adversely impacts the quality of their lives and the chance for independent living. Every year, Worldwide Orphans addresses the needs of over 3500 children and youth from this population. The plight of this population has worsened since the COVID-19 pandemic as they are one of the most vulnerable groups in society.
