Worldwide Orphans works to alter the lives of orphaned children so that they can become healthy, independent, productive members of their communities and the world.

Last year I traveled to Vietnam with WWO and witnessed the unbelievable work of this organization. After spending the day with 100 HIV infected orphans at The Ba Vi Orphanage in Northern Vietnam, I am forever changed. These children are not only given the medication necessary to survive, but they are given a second chance at life.

That is what WWO does. It gives young orphans the tools and resources that will help them obtain a chance at a future. Education, health care, homes, emotional support—all things we often take for granted.

Dr. Jane Aronson started this organization 20 years ago. Since that time, thousands of orphans’ lives have been made better and their prospect for a productive future has been enhanced.
Thank you so much for your support!!!


WWO is honored to once again serve as a Charity Partner in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour.
For five years, our fearless WWO Superhero Riders have not only biked 40 miles through the 5 boroughs of New York City, they have also raised tens of thousands of dollars for WWO and the children we serve. This year, 35 of our most enthusiastic and active supporters will be riding the 40 miles once again.

WWO's mission is to transform the lives of orphans and vulnerable children through access to medical care, education, and psychosocial support so they can become healthy, independent, and productive members of their community and the world.
