In April 2023 our team of volunteers had a fun visit with the children at the Loc Tho Charity School. After speaking with the nuns at the school, we arranged a visit with lots of food and general supplies for the month. On the day of the visit, our team loaded up a van and drove out to see the children.

This month, we brought bags of rice, boxes of ramen noodles, mushroom varieties, vegan meat pies, vegan pork, began fish sauce, soy sauce, glass noodles, tofu, sugar, and many fresh vegetables.

As a cool treat on a hot day, our team handed out iced pudding to all the children. There were lots of big smiles and chocolate faces!

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


The Loc Tho Pagoda has had a charity school since 1991, which was founded by Sister Thich Nu Dieu Y.  Sister Dieu Y dedicated her life to the children and passed away in 2014. The school is now run by the amazing and loving nuns of the Loc Tho pagoda. It’s a free primary school for poor children in the community whose parents cannot afford the costs of a public education. Textbooks, uniforms, shoes, school supplies, and teachers’ fees are all paid for by the school, and all children are welcome. The school provides breakfast and lunch for the students. The pagoda also cares for several orphans and foster children.
