In May 2024 we had a great visit with the children at the Thien An Charity Home and School. It’s the end of the school year, and some of the children are finishing kindergarten. In addition to bringing Thien An monthly provisions, we wanted to have a party for the children before they begin first grade next year. We coordinated with the caretakers and our team of volunteers made all the arrangements.

When we arrived, our team stacked all the general supplies in the courtyard. These included bags of rice, racks of eggs, canned meats, boxes of ramen, and lots of cleaning supplies.

For the children’s celebration, we handed out slices of cake and other snacks, and the children all got toys for presents. It was a great day!

This charity visit was made possible through the kind donations from Steven Burger and an anonymous donor. Thank you!!!


This loving place is located in the hilly countryside of Khanh Hoa province. There are very few schools in this region and illiteracy among children is high. The local Thien An Catholic Church sought to help the children complete their schooling, so started the Thien An Charity Home and School. The children have housing accommodations and receive their meals in a communal dining hall. Classrooms have been set up so the children can all receive the education they richly deserve.
