In January 2021 we had a fun visit to the Suoi Dau Charity Home. We coordinated with the caretakers and loaded up a van with lots of essential supplies and foodstuff. When we arrived, the boys were excellent helpers and brought everything to the main courtyard.

On this visit, we brought bags of rice, boxes of instant noodles, seasonings, bottles of chili sauce, bottles of soy sauce, cooking oil, laundry detergent, fabric softener, washcloths, and cleaning supplies.

Our volunteers prepared a yummy treat for the children, and everyone got to enjoy cups of sweet ‘che’. Our team stayed for a while as the children played in the courtyard. The children also showed us some arts and crafts they are working on to prepare for the upcoming lunar new year. They are creating lovely flower arrangements!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of Daniel Cole, Bichlien Nguyen, Susan Papuga, and KTD Services LLC. Thank you!!!


The Suoi Dau Charity Home is located in Suoi Dau district near Suoi Cat, which are both poor communities to the west of Nha Trang composed of rural farming hamlets that live in poverty. The Suoi Dau Charity Home is a loving place that houses and cares for a group of the community’s young boys whose families struggle to support and provide for them. The boys stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The boys all come from the ethnic Raglay minority group. Overseen by pastor Dam Nguyen, the caretakers who run the home provide a nurturing environment and ensure the children attend local public schools and provide after-school tutoring lessons.
