In mid-September we visited the Suoi Cat Charity Home with lots of essential supplies. We had contacted the caretakers and learned of the Home’s most pressing needs. Our team bought everything at local markets, loaded up a van, and made the long drive out to Suoi Cat. The girls helped bring everything into the common room, and our lead coordinator Mai Khanh handed out snack bags, including moon cakes in celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The supplies we brought included bags of rice, boxes of instant noodles, packages of yellow noodles, seasonings, peanuts, laundry detergent, fabric softener, toiletries, and cleaning supplies. It was a fun visit!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of Elaine Nguyen, KTD Services LLC, and Dan, Van, and Devin Haynes. 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
