Volunteer Medical Outreach (VMO) :http://vmoatcal.wix.com/calvmo 




Established in 2008, Volunteers for Medical Outreach (VMO) is a student run organization composed of highly dedicated UC Berkeley students at the University of California, Berkeley. 

VMO works with Aid for Children Without Parents (ACWP)  reach their goals. To integrate their efforts, they travel alongside ACWP  doctors, and Vietnamese volunteer staff during medical mobile clinic trips . VMO members fundraise and collect donations throughout the academic year to buy medicines and medical supplies needed to run mobile clinics, hepatitis B vaccination clinics, and corrective surgery programs held each summer in Vietnam. In addition, VMO members assist doctors during clinical sessions as well as teach basic health lessons to school children. 

During the VMO mobile clinic trips, their members write about their experiences to not only share with others, but also to self reflect. Follow them and their stories at :








 Medical Mission Trip 
In 2009, a group of highly dedicated people from the healthcare fields in San Jose came together with a mission to provide basic medical care to most disadvantaged populations in Vietnam. 

From July 15-30 this team will be working in remote communes and districts in  Hue and  province in the Mekong Delta.

They have helped us so much!"​                                       Dam Sam Village Elder

SCIC-Saving children in Crisis

                                                      ACWP took a huge leap in 2017 to expand our mission and vision.                                                           We are  starting a non-profit post-secondary vocational school                                                                called Knowledge  Innovations   Academy!  www.kiacademyusa.org .
                                                     The school will offer basic level courses in Accounting, Computer Applications, Culinary, Electronics Engineering Technician, and English. We believe that education has always been the root of change. Helping students develop marketable skills in addition to personnel development so students are able to contribute to society is our number one priority. We aim to provide career and education opportunities to children and disadvantaged people at the local and international level.

If you are interested in helping us fulfill ACWP’s next chapter, please feel free to contact us at kiainfo@acwp.org. Your continued support and encouragement help us help one child at a time. 

Imagine your 5 yr old daughter, son, nephew/niece, or even just a child next door being sold as slaves for sex with grown men!
We’re talking about the horrific crimes that go on behind closed doors in third world countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. Unfortunately, such crime does exist and these children are victims of a fast growing industry of “child sex trafficking”. What can we do to stop this? How can we help?
