In December 2023 we had a fun visit with the children at the Loc Tho Charity School in Nha Trang. We coordinated with the caretakers about bringing needed supplies for the month. They provided us with a detailed list of items, and on the day of the visit, our team bought everything at local markets.

On this visit, we brought bags of rice, boxes of noodles, milk, cooking oil, fresh vegetables, varieties of mushrooms, soy sauce, vegan beef, vegan pork, seasonings, body wash, and laundry detergent.

The children all took a break from their lessons to greet our team. When everyone was in the courtyard, we prepared sweet treats for all to enjoy. It was a lovely day!

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.
