HOW is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in the USA, whose staff consists of all volunteers. Its mission is to provide hope and care to neglected, abandoned, and orphaned children in deprived areas of the world with a specific focus on VietNam.
Helping Orphan's Worldwide (HOW) Inc. has been very blessed with wonderful people helping so many people in ways one could not imagine! We have had many wonderful volunteers who have helped us to get to areas where there are hungry and impoverished people suffering in silence and some in such remote areas that it takes hours to get to them, and sometimes on food through very rough conditions. HOW has the most amazing volunteers who have close their small shops, taken unpaid days off work, gathered friends to help, and have joined together as a loving team to find these people and deliver much needed milk, rice, meat, fish, and fruit.
They have even gone through their clothing and asked others with very little to do the same and have delivered clothing along with food.
We have been amazed to see that those who have the least give the most in ways that one would never expect and have found happiness and joy to be part of a team who works from the heart and will do whatever it takes to help people in need.
I have been asked to not mention names as these wonderful angels would like to help in silence, and as our good friend put it “silent hero’s” are the ones who really are making the difference with one request from HOW “PLEASE DO NOT MENTION MY NAME I WANT TO DO THIS BECAUSE I CARE, NOT FOR ANY OTHER REASON”
HOW has been blessed with many silent heroes and many people that would like to be named in order to inspire others, to us EVERYONE IS A HERO! This team of volunteers is growing because of every effort big and small (which there really is no such thing as “small”) 1 toothbrush, 1 cup of rice, 1 hour of your time to talk to someone who is suffering maybe silently, maybe not… time is a gift!
We want to thank the entire Heroes out in this big world for all you do to change lives for so many.
