HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Way back in 2006 a cyclone came through Vung Tau a wreaked quite a bit of havoc, unfortunately with some loss of life. It was decided by a group of Veterans and expats to get together and raise some money to help the community.
We have certainly come a long way since then.  We started out by giving TET presents to the school kids and a couple of orphanages. Gradually we moved on the bigger things.

Then around about October 2010 we decided to become a bit more organised and officially formed the VTV & FCF.
We noticed that when the NGO’s come over  here (Non Government Organizations) they would embark on a project which they thought was a good idea with out asking the locals what THEY wanted. Then when they completed whatever they wanted to do they then went home feeling all warm and fuzzy and forgot about the kids. “

Now we ain’t complaining (some groups did some terrific work), we just thought that there should be a better way to do this!”
