Our operational centres in Vietnam and Mongolia focus on three key areas of assistance:
All Foundation projects are long term sustainable initiatives established and fully maintained by CNCF staff.
Child Sponsorship Programme
The CNCF Child Sponsorship Programme is our biggest programme with over 1,200 and 1,500 registered children in Vietnam and Mongolia today. It was established to assist impoverished families and encourage them to keep their children in mainstream schooling rather than on the streets subsizing the family income. Each child in the Sponsorship Programme receives funds for a tailored range of basic necessities such as school books and supplies, uniforms, bicycles, medicine and rehabilitative treatment.
Education provides a solid foundation for improving future prospects and breaking the cycle of poverty. Access to education is often not possible for families living in poverty or for abandoned or orphaned children without legal papers.
CNCF has established a number of education projects to address this.
Healthcare projects in Vietnam and Mongolia ensure that children receive an international standard of free medical and preventative healthcare services.
Community Development projects help to rejuvenate communities and prevent children from becoming at-risk of exploitation.
These projects range from donating bikes and gers on an individual basis, to capital project funding of infrastructural facilities like waterwells and kindergartens that serve whole communities.

HK$7 is all it takes each day to feed a child at the CNCF Tay Ninh Centre for Visually Impaired Children in Vietnam. That's the same as buying a bottle of Bon Aqua water in Hong Kong.
