Vinacapital Foundation

About Us

Our Approach & Impact

Our Approach

Poverty is a vicious cycle that is difficult for anyone to break, and that’s especially true for children—the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in Vietnam.
VinaCapital Foundation is committed to helping those who cannot help themselves, so that they may someday stand on their own feet and take advantage of all the opportunities provided by Vietnam’s bright future. We aim to achieve this goal and realize our mission through our unique approach:
  1. Building capacity to prevent needless death in the pediatric health care system of Vietnam, with programs in cardiac care, intensive care, neonatal care and emergency care, through training and equipment donations
  2. Advocating and providing financial relief and funding for heart surgeries for poor families in Vietnam
  3. Mentoring and supporting the education of ethnic minority girls

Our Impact

We understand that numbers are important. They give us a different perspective on our efforts; help us to see the forest from the trees and visualize our work at a national level. It's important not to forget that these results reflect people. The reality is we’re not fighting for numbers. A number does not have a story, a dream, or a need. A child does. And that’s who we’re really fighting for.
