In December 2023 the Nhan Ai Orphanage had a big Christmas party for all the children. When the nuns told us about the planned event, we offered to contribute to the costs. The nuns were very happy!

In the evening on Christmas Day, the orphanage put out a huge dinner for all the children to enjoy. Next, a few of the older boys dressed in Santa outfits, and everyone went out to the main courtyard. They handed out presents to all the children, and there were lots of fun games. It was a wonderful evening!

Our contributions to this event came from donations from Eamonn Gahan, Elaine Nguyen, Bichlien Nguyen, Hung Pham, and Tiffany Nguyen. Thank you!!!


Founded in 1996 by Sister Nguyen Thi Bao Quyen, the Nhan Ai Orphanage resides behind the Giao Xu Phu Nhon Catholic Church in Cam Ranh, to the south of Nha Trang. The orphanage is run by the nuns of Nhan Ai and relies entirely upon donations, most of which come from people in the community. Nhan Ai is the largest orphanage that we assist and houses approximately 130 orphans in a wonderfully tranquil home.
