In 1994, NorthWood made the decision to focus our overseas efforts on serving the people of Vietnam. Working exclusively in the north, we continue to touch lives through our work with hospitals, universities, orphanages and a multitude of other humanitarian pursuits. Each year exchange students from Hanoi live with NorthWood families and attend our local high schools to complete their final year of education. Many of these students go on to attend universities in the United States and will return to Hanoi and become Vietnam’s future leaders. To see how you can get involved in Vietnam, click here.
Suffering the same needs as other developing nations, our Mexican neighbors present NorthWood with numerous opportunities for service in the areas of business, education, medicine, advocacy and water purification. Our support efforts include feeding the poor, healing the sick, caring for orphans and assisting local churches in Puebla to reach remote villages with the Gospel.
