The Mai Tam House of Hope is a home and center
for HIV/AIDS positive widows, mothers, and children.
It provides shelter, medicine, medical care, education, and referrals for its residents and the many walk-ins it receives. The children living at Mai Tam are both infected and affected by HIV/AIDS – some are HIV positive or have AIDS, and some are the children or orphans of parents with HIV/AIDS. When Mai Tam was established in 2005, the founders hoped to assist 100 affected women and children,
but today, Mai Tam, the first and only facility of its kind in Ho Chi Minh City,
supports more than 500 women and children in need.

To provide necessary medicines and food within a controlled environment to a targeted group of HIV positive children and mothers in order to ensure a quality of life consistent with their healthy peers and surroundings; first priority is to the children.
The Mai Tam Project, a private group, provides funding and oversight for medicines for HIV positive children and mothers, on a limited basis, to specified orphanage(s) or community situational programs (mother/child care programs). Children typically live on site or visit daily and attend school full time as able to occur. More sites will be identified and added.
Funding for purchase of appropriate medicines and critically needed food is our first priority.
