DA NANG (VNS) — Robert Valentino Kalatschan will cook for a group of children from six centres of the Giving It Back to Kids organisation in the central city on Children's Day.

Kalatschan, from the United States, and his wife Dorothea established the organisation in 2002 after they visited Viet Nam to adopt a child. They will also give away prizes for the best students.

The organisation is home to 90 children, aged 3–18, from homeless or underprivileged backgrounds. It provides psychological and emotional support, in addition to education, at the six centres.

Since its inception, the organisation has also provided US$3.2 million for charitable programmes, which help single mothers and girls, covering the costs of eye, heart and orthopaedic surgery for children, and donating wheelchairs to people with disabilities. — VNS
