Incredible opportunity to shadow medical professionals such as nurses, doctors, and specialist therapists. The hospital has a physiotherapy department, children’s ward, x-ray ward, operating theatre and emergency room, all of which you can get involved with. You may also have an opportunity to observe staff in the acupuncture and occupational/physical therapy departments.

teaching to college students

Teach English in Ho Chi Minh city. You'll be teaching university students aged 18-24 who are very eager to learn from you. Help assist local teachers in teaching conversational skills, as well as sentence forming and structure building.

preparing food

Help support a local NGO that provides low cost meals for locals who need affordable, quality meals. The NGO relies on donations to survive and volunteers can provide an essential assistence to this project. You will be preparing and serving meals to people in need. This is a really rewarding project!


You will volunteer at a children’s home that cares for 20-25 Vietnamese children, who have a variety of disabilities. Your main role as a volunteer is to play with the kids and care for them. Your daily roles include comforting the children, playing games, and interacting with them. Previous experience in this field would be helpful but not essential.

We had a great time volunteering at the Nutrition Support program in Ho Chi Minh City!

We had a great time volunteering at the Nutrition Support program in Ho Chi Minh City!

It was such a fulfilling experience to come help out every day and work alongside the other volunteers from all over the world and the local staff to serve really good food to the people of this community.

Kenny was wonderful about escorting us everywhere and explaining our tasks and translating everything from Vietnamese to English.

We got up early in the morning to head to the kitchen and help the staff that’s already been cooking for hours to prepare healthy, filling, and delicious meals for people who otherwise would have a hard time getting something to eat. It’s clear that the members of this community appreciate and benefit from this program and the people who run it, some of whom are volunteers themselves and have been helping out every day for years.

Giving of our time and energy to work together and get to know everyone at the kitchen felt refreshing and satisfying, as well as gave us a unique opportunity to be exposed to real local culture. Everyone was super welcoming and made us feel at home, even through the language barrier that existed on both sides.

We also got to taste the locally sourced dishes that were made in the kitchen, and everything was delicious! Some of the meals were certainly not foods that we would have found on our own and that was extra special. We love experiencing local food and culture wherever we travel, so this was an absolute treat.

We highly recommend Nutrition Support program to anyone visiting Vietnam and staying in Ho Chi Minh City. It’s truly a fantastic experience that you will never forget.
