VinaCapital Foundation (VCF) is a USA registered 501-c3 public charitable organization, registered as a foreign non-governmental organization in Vietnam. Founded in 2006, VCF aims to empower the children and youth of Vietnam, by providing opportunities for growth and improvement through health and education programs. The work of VCF touches the lives of millions of Vietnamese in 63 provinces every year.

VCF’s grassroots medical programs include Heartbeat Vietnam which funds heart surgeries for disadvantaged children including pre- and post- operative care, as well as, Rural Outreach Clinics to screen children in remote areas. Medical capacity building programs include the International Symposium for Pediatric Care- educating doctors; Critical Response – Pediatric Advanced Life Support Training & emergency equipment; and, Survive to Thrive – Improving Neonatal Care in Vietnam. VCF’s education initiative, the Brighter Path program, is an empowerment and scholarship program for disadvantaged but academically talented ethnic minority girls that develops communities and reduces poverty.

New VCF initiatives include advocacy, prevention and treatment for poor children with Retinopathy of Prematurity and the National Hearing Mission. The National Hearing Mission operates in 63 provinces to identify children and adults suffering from hearing loss, provide professional medical diagnosis and corresponding devices to correct and/or improve hearing, establish speech therapy if needed and ensure free maintenance and adjustments for each patient in the future. VCF is also working with the leadership of the medical community to create a Medical Knowledge Hub that provides low cost means of obtaining Continuing Medical Education and builds capacity by providing an online means of self-education for medical professionals. All donations to VCF go to the program activity designated by the donor and the organization is audited annually by KPMG.
