In mid-December 2020 we had a fun Christmas visit at the Suoi Cat Charity Home. It is always fun to have holiday visits with the children, and we wanted this year to be no different. After speaking with the caretakers, we bought lots of essential supplies and foodstuff for the home and arranged a special Christmas party for the children.

When we arrived, the children helped carry everything from the truck, and stacked all the supplies on a table set up in front of the courtyard. We brought bags of rice, packages of ramen noodles, bottles of cooking oil, seasonings, bottles of fish sauce, packages of flour, bottles of sriracha, and milk .

The children put on adorable Santa hats for the occasion, and everyone got a present! Then we handed out yummy juice drinks for all the children to enjoy. Before our team left, the girls gathered in the courtyard and performed songs and dances that they had learned in school. It was so much fun!

This special holiday visit was made possible through the kindhearted donations of Elaine Nguyen, Phillip Doughty, Suruchi Khemka, and KTD Services LLC. Thank you!!!


Suoi Cat is a poor community to the west of Nha Trang, composed of rural farming hamlets that live in poverty. The Suoi Cat Charity Home is a loving place that houses and cares for many of the community’s children whose families struggle to support and provide for them. The home is composed of young children and teenage girls, who stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The children attend public school and receive tutoring and extra lessons at the home.
