Welcome to the Friends of

Vinh Son Montagnard Orphanage (VSO)

Friends of Vinh Son Montagnard Orphanage, Vietnam, provides a coordinated effort to raise resources (cash and in-kind gifts) that provide a happier and more fulfilling quality of life for the children at the Orphanage.

The orphanage is administered by The Sisters of the Miraculous Medal who, with our help, provide:

  1. Primary and secondary education as directed by the Vietnamese government

  2. Life skills to ensure the children become self sufficient

  3. A safe environment

  4. Food, clothing, shelter and medical care


For only $12 a month (about the price of one take-out large pizza) you will provide daily nutrition for one child for one month. Make a difference today!

100% of your donation goes to the kids. The Board pays for all administrative expenses and travel costs.

If you wish to contribute, we encourage you to not only make a personal contribution, but to spread the word about our work to other Vets, your church and community groups.

What's New?

Each year since 2005 we have been able to make improvements in our mission goals of food, medical care and education.  We have been dedicated to helping them attain self-sufficiency.  We are most satisfied with the progress we have made.  I invite you to spend some time on our WEB site reading old newsletters. The progress we have made in our mission goals is amazing, because of you.  It always seems as the world gets more complex somebody keeps moving the goal posts !  Your support is most critical in keeping us in the game.  We at FVSO are most grateful for your continued support


None of this would be possible without your generosity.  The work load the nuns have and the energy to keep all this going is beyond imagination. Your contributions are a big help in relieving the nuns of some of the worry about running an operation this size.  Through us they express their deep gratitude for your donations and your support.

Need a speaker for a reunion or major event?  Contact us. We may have someone in your area.  We love to talk about the kids.

If you use AMAZON for your shopping be sure to include us as a SMILE partner.  A great way to help the kids during the holiday season.  Thank you to those who have included us in their shopping.
