Bringing Aid to Victims of Agent Orange Contamination
The goal of An Phuc International is to improve the lives of Agent Orange victims throughout Southeast Asia and spread awareness of their plight. To this day thousands of Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Laotian families struggle with physical deformities as a result of Agent Orange contamination and new cases occur everyday. In the 1960’s the United States effectively employed chemical warfare when it dumped millions of gallons of Agent Orange all over Southern Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. As a result, 40 years later in 2020, infants are still born sick or physically deformed and left abandoned at hospitals by their parents. Most victims are left unable to work, but some have been able to push forward despite their limitations. Many of these victims receive no aid from their governments and only provide assistance to citizens with parents who served in the war. Unfortunately the vast majority of those contaminated are children of regular citizens, An Phuc International offers them some of the only assistance they can get.

What We Do
An Phuc International was named after the An Phuc Charity House in Vietnam, where agent orange survivors are housed and taught certain vocational skills. the American counterpart, An Phuc International, aims to first spread awareness of the continuation and effects still felt throughout Vietnam, while many charities exist to air the offspring of US Vietnam War Veterans, few exist to help those in Vietnam.
The mission of An Phuc International is threefold:
1. To spread awareness of Agent Orange contamination and the existence of victims around the world, specifically across the United States through college Campuses.
2. To raise money to assist families and facilities in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos struggling with the effects of Agent Orange.
3. To use the funds to directly donate to victims and bypass potential corruption or bureacracy.
Bali Spirit Festival
In 2019, An Phuc International was invited to Bali to join an information & donation booth and give a series of educational lectures at the world renown Bali Spirit Festival. During the presentation we were able to video chat live with one of the victims we are helping Thư Pháp Minh Thắng (Thang) who recently got married and had a beautiful baby daughter.
