As in most developing countries, disabled people in Vietnam do not receive the level of support they need. About 1 million children aged 0-17 in Vietnam are disabled. CSDS supports organisations that provide vital assistance to disabled children as well as children in hospitals. We currently support several projects that provide care for people with special needs. Volunteers can contribute in a number of different ways. These include cooperating with the teaching staff, coming up with new techniques to help the children, or sharing ideas on how to structure lessons.
What do our volunteers do?
- Help children develop vocational skills
- Assist in classes
- Organise structured activities
- Help with feeding
- Give individual assistance
- Undergo personal therapy session (if appropriately qualified)
