Betty Tisdale- NBC videoBetty Tisdale is doing again what she does best, saving and caring for orphans in war zones.

Known as the Angel of Saigon dating all the way back to the Vietnam war, Betty established an orphanage there and constantly raised money to build new additions for more orphans and better facilities. These days she brings her halo and heart to Afghanistan.

Her organization in Seattle called HALO — Helping And Loving Orphans — has built the first Afghan Montessori nursery school for their new orphanage in Kabul.

HALO, officially established in July 2000, has also helped other orphanages in Colombia, hiring a physical therapist for the handicapped children housed there, and in Mexico.
