Humanitarian Services for Children of Vietnam (HSCV) - non-profit charitable organizations helping orphans, homeless children and other needy children in Viet Nam. Established in 2001 by Chuck DeVet and his daughter Annetta in the United States.
Many of the HSCV charitable projects are implemented in Hanoi or its suburbs, where it supplies food, shelter, clothing, health and education directly to the children or through local Vietnamese organizations. The institution cooperates with adopting agencies in related issues and involves volunteers.
Among the projects are:
- Sister School Program, helps funding poor [[Wikipedia:school|school]s by linking them with other schools and organizations around the world;
