In early February 2018 we brought a Tet party to the Dai An Orphanage. Dai An is a loving home to young orphans, set in the peaceful countryside to the south of Nha Trang. The lunar new year, Tet, is the biggest holiday of the year in Vietnam, and we endeavor to bring the holiday joy to the orphans. Traditions include wearing new clothes at the start of the new year, eating Tet treats, and children receiving red envelopes of lucky money. Poor orphanages cannot often afford to give the children the traditions of the holiday, which is where we come in.
On this visit, we brought all the orphans at Dai An brand new clothes to usher in the new year. The children were quick to put on their new outfits and sandals for the party. We also brought lots of traditional food for the holiday, and every orphan received their own red envelope of lucky money. We also brought some general supplies for the orphanage. The children had so much fun!
This visit was made possible through the kind donations of Sharon Kelly and Stephen Milne.
