In mid-June 2020 we had a fun visit to the Suoi Dau Charity Home. We had reached out to the caretakers ahead of time and made a list of their most pressing needs. Our team went to local markets and bought everything on the list, then loaded up a truck and drove out to the Home.

Upon our arrival, the children came out and helped carry everything to the steps of the Home. Such great helpers! On this visit, we brought bags of rice, boxes of instant noodles, packages of white noodles, bags of bean varieties, packages of milk, seasonings, detergent, and cleaning supplies.

As a treat, we handed out snacks and cool drinks to the children. We then brought out a fun surprise: new sports equipment! We brought badminton sets and soccer balls, and it was lovely to see the children jump right in and play in the Home’s main courtyard.

This charity trip was made possible through the kindhearted donations of Hiep Nguyen and Andrew Perovich. 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.
