Vietnam is currently not involved in any conflict. Nevertheless, the population still bears the effects of the Vietnam War, particularly those caused by Agent Orange, a pesticide used by the American army.
The disabled children volunteer program is conducted in various institutions, which may include Agent Orange care centers, schools and community care clinics for children with mental or physical disabilities. The nature of a volunteer’s tasks can vary depending on the specific center they are assigned to. Typically, volunteers are responsible for assisting children with mobility activities, conducting rehabilitation exercises, administering therapeutic treatments, facilitating training and educational activities, and helping maintain the centers. They also play a role in training and supporting local staff.
The program runs from Monday to Friday, with the volunteer generally expected to work for 4-6 hours a day.
