THIEN TAM ORPHANAGE

Founded in 2004, the Mai Am Thien Tam Orphanage lies just 20 minutes south of Nha Trang’s city center, in Phuoc Dong ward. The orphanage is run by Nguyen Dinh Chi and his wife Nguyen Thi Kim Lien. A former orphan himself, Chi set up the orphanage in his home as a place of love and sanctuary for orphans of Nha Trang.  As the facilities are very small, they currently care for only 13 children, all aged 3 to 6. The orphanage is run by Chi and Lien, and is not owned or operated by Lovingkindness Vietnam.  They rely entirely upon donations, most of which come from people in the community.

At such a short distance from Nha Trang, this is one of the easiest places to visit. Most orphanages that we assist lie far from the city lights, but Thien Tam rests in a lovely open setting just south of Nha Trang. Donations to this cause go to buying food for the children, upkeep of the facilities, and paying school fees. To donate to this wonderful home, click the Donate button, which can be found on any page of this site in the top right. From the PayPal form, include a comment to indicate that you wish the donation to go to Thien Tam. You can also send us an email at ahren@lovingkindnessvietnam.org.
