Children of the Mekong’s headquarters is in France. We have several chapters in the world such as our UK office where Children of the Mekong is registered at the Charity Commission for England and Wales (No 1116375) and runs a charity shop in Southwest London.
We also have teams of dedicated volunteers in Hong Kong, Singapore, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland and the USA.
The work of Children of the Mekong is made possible only by the generous support of thousands of sponsors, donors, partners and volunteers. Your commitment makes us even more determined to be as effective and as transparent as possible in all that we do.
