Volunteer Organisations Need You!
Volunteering is time willingly given for the common good and without financial gain.
While volunteering provides substantial benefits to society, importantly it also provides significant benefits to the volunteers themselves.

Australian Vietnam Resource Group (AVVRG)
The project we run in Vietnam is based out of the Long Tan district and has now been going for around 9 years. The clinic was funded and built by Australia Vietnam Volunteer Resource Group (AVVRG) and started as just a static clinic. It has grown considerably since then – we sent one or two teams each year initially, but now five to six teams go and work a week at a time. Contact Lesley Denny for further information.
National Dental Foundation (NDF)
The National Dental Foundation offers dental treatment to referred patients genuinely in need of dental care. These patients can be from homeless or in near homeless situations, extreme financially difficult backgrounds, foster situations, domestic violence and dispute backgrounds, and also any people who are under the care of a Charity group who don’t have ready access to the public dental system facilities or private dental treatment. To volunteer your services or make a donation visit their website or contact Karyn Elliott.

CHAT is a not-for-profit organisation located in Perth, Western Australia.

These services are provided on a volunteer basis, with the total cost of each project being funded by the volunteers themselves.
CHAT provides dental services to the underprivileged in Vietnam including orphans, special needs children, very poor children and their carers.
