Who We Are
We Are On A Mission To
Help Young People In Need
Vietnam Orphans Winchester (VOW) is a small group who see an urgent need in Vietnam. The children we help are orphans, or children whose parents are unable to support them either financially or physically, they number about 800. The six orphanages we support are situated in remote parts of the country, away from towns and cities. They are not in the news and have been left behind by the major organisations. This is why we want to support them.
What We ARE DOING
Our Latest Goals
We have had a number of very successful fundraising projects in the last 2 years, which have helped with day-to-day life in some of the orphanages that are not so well equipped.
We are quite new but are wanting to make an impact on improving the lives of these children by giving them practical help especially if we can help them support themselves. We have given them washing machines to save staff time and also enable the children to have more time for sport or school rather than doing laundry. We have also given industrial-sized dough mixers so they can bake bread for sale in the market.
These are some of our latest goals and the ways we are supporting them.
New Washing Machines
We helped raise funds to purchase three washing machines to replace washing by hand. Goal Achieved!
We have reached our goal and donated a barbecue, the dream is that the cooked chicken can be sold to raise funds.
Our goal is to purchase school and other books in Vietnamese to stock their libraries.

Alan’s JOGLE Trip
In October 2021, Alan is planning to travel from near John o’Groats in north Scotland to Land’s End in the extreme south of England, with collections and deliveries for his courier business and gathering donations for VOW along the way. He is hoping for a sponsor for his van and accommodation, with fuel already sponsored. The trip is expected to take three or four days. Most funds raised from the trip will go towards buying books.
UPDATE : The trip is ongoing into November partly due to recent weather conditions.
