In early February 2018 we brought a Tet party to the Thua Sai Home for Disabled Children. Located in a peaceful country setting in Cam Ranh, to the south of Nha Trang, Thua Sai offers a home and school for children with neurological disorders whose parents cannot afford the specialized care their children require.
The lunar new year, Tet, is the biggest holiday of the year in Vietnam, and we endeavor to bring the holiday joy to the children. Traditions include eating traditional food, such at Ban Tet, and children receiving red envelopes of lucky money. Poor families struggle to bring these traditions to their children, and we make it our mission to see that these wonderful children receive something special for the holidays.
On this visit, we brought some essential supplies for the home, including a restocking of their medicine cabinet. We also brought lots of Banh Tet to have a traditional Tet feast for everyone. Each child got their own red envelope of lucky money, and received a lovely gift basket of Tet food and snacks to take home to their families. It was a fun party!
This trip was made possible through the kind donations of Kari Pepar, Thao Dinh, Michael Le, Frank Kaul, Andrew & Teri Lowder, and Han Dang.
