Welcome to Hue Help…
Hue Help works to improve the health, education and future prospects of children in Vietnam.
Swimming for Safety
Drowning is the leading cause of death in children in Vietnam. Over 2,000 children a year drown in Vietnam. Drowning kills more children than any single disease or infection – more than Malaria, TB, HIV/AIDS, Dengue and malnutrition – combined.
Swimming for Safety trains school teachers as swimming teachers, who then go on to train children in survival swimming and water safety awareness.
We’ve trained over 400 teachers who have reached over 11,000 children. We are proud of our achievements, but we need your help to help keep more children safe from drowning.
Hue Children’s Shelter
Hue Children’s Shelter is a home for children without parents or family that are not able to care for them.
Since 2006, we’ve provided education, career orientation, life skills training, university scholarships and recreational activities for children. Our aim is to provide the best possible support to enable children at Hue Children’s Shelter to have great childhoods and bright, independent futures.
