In March 2023 our team of volunteers traveled north into Ninh Hoa and had a lovely visit at the Ngoc Van Orphanage. Before we made the journey we contacted the caretakers to learn what the orphanage needed this month. We wrote down a detailed list of items, then bought everything at local markets on the day of the visit, loaded up a van, and came out to the orphanage.

On this charity trip, we brought bottles of cooking oil, seasonings, packages of glass noodles, vegan fish, milk, cheese, and cleaning supplies.

Our team also prepared sweat bubble tea drinks for all the children to enjoy. So many adorable smiles!

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


Located in the northern part of Khanh Hoa province, the Ngoc Van Orphanage was founded in 2020 after a big storm hit central Vietnam. There were many deaths from the storm, and several orphans were brought to the Ngoc Van Pagoda to be cared for the monks there. Since then, the orphanage has grown and now cares for about 20 small children.
