Make a positive difference in the lives of ill and disadvantaged children in Nepal and Vietnam
Buds to Blossoms is a non-profit organization that brings volunteers from around the world to Vietnam and Nepal to provide direct care to AIDS orphans, other children affected by HIV/AIDS and orphans with disabilities.
In Buds to Blossoms’ Pediatric Massage Volunteer Program, volunteers offer gentle therapeutic massage to children to foster their health, well-being and development.
* Experience with massage is not required to participate in the program.
* Nurturing touch and one-on-one attention is crucial for the development of children.
* Programs are led by experienced massage therapists and include basic training in how to provide massage to children with disabilities and HIV/AIDS.
