Ricky Ly, founder of, is the son of Vietnamese refugees and is also a board member of WorldOrlando. “In a way, this is a small act to give back to those in need and seeking refuge from the tragedies of war.”

Since 1963, WorldOrlando, a 501c3 nonprofit, has served as the local implementer of the U.S. Dept. of State’s premier professional exchange program, the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP).

WorldOrlando hosted numerous IVLP participants from Afghanistan over the years whom we’ve stayed in contact with and are committed to supporting during this current humanitarian crisis. Your support addresses the urgent needs of these IVLP alumni and their families, who are at risk due to their previous involvement in U.S.-funded activities.
