In November 2022 we made another visit to the newly discovered Ngoc Van Orphanage. We reached out to the nuns at the orphanage and asked them what provisions they required this month. They provided a detailed list and our team bought everything at local markets. Next, we loaded up a van and made the long drive north from Nha Trang to Ngoc Van.

When our team arrived, the children were doing homework in the common room, and were more than happy to take a break. We brought all the food and supplies inside and the children gathered around. On this visit, we brought packages of glass noodles, seasonings, packages of sausages, condensed milk, canned fish, bottles of soy sauce, sugar, diapers, bar soap, and shampoo.

We handed out balloons for the children to play and fruit snack cups for everyone to enjoy. So many lovely smiles all around!

This charity trip to the orphanage was made possible through the kind donations from JL Support Services. Thank you!!!


Located in the northern part of Khanh Hoa province, the Ngoc Van Orphanage was founded in 2020 after a big storm hit central Vietnam. There were many deaths from the storm, and several orphans were brought to the Ngoc Van Pagoda to be cared for the monks there. Since then, the orphanage has grown and now cares for about 20 small children.
