Welcome to Friends of Hue Foundation
The Friends of Hue Foundation takes a multifaceted approach to uplifting the city of Hue through programs that address the medical, economic, and social problems of the region. It serves today as the only registered American non-governmental organization in Hue, located in Central Vietnam. Founded in 2000 in response to the 1999 Vietnamese floods, FHF initially administered short-term relief by providing free medical check-ups, emergency cash donations, and interest-free loans.
Today, FHF continues its mission by running three individual operations: the Health Initiative, the Financial Initiative, and the Children’s Shelter in the Xuan Phu neighborhood of Hue City. The Health Initiative includes both the Health Education through Peer Training program and the Mobile Clinic Program, while the Financial Initiative encompasses the “Mending Communities One Stitch at a Time” Initiative as well as a unique capital loan equipment program in which FHF is partnered with Thriive. While these previous programs’ activities change depending on funding and need, the Children’s Shelter at Xuan Phu is our top priority and the heart of our foundation. To learn more about all of these projects, please visit each initiative’s individual page.
Voluntary assistance serves as the fuel for the Friends of Hue Foundation, and we appreciate your involvement, whether it be in the form of monetary donations or on-site volunteering. To learn more about other ways you can lend a hand, please refer to our Get Involved page for ideas. Thank you for supporting our cause!
