Aid Children Without Parents

"Aid Children Without Parents" ("ACWP") is a humanitarian non-profit organization for helping Vietnamese orphans and refugees. Established in 1988 by Nguyen Dinh Huu ("Bac Huu").

The Organizations provided assistance for displaced Vietnamese minors in refugee camps throughout Southeast Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, The Philippines, Singapore and Hong Kong) in the late 1980s. Such assistance included free classes at refugee camps, healthcare services, recreational and youth activities, seasonal celebrations, Christmas festival.
