In early November 2019 we had a great visit with the boys at the Suoi Dau Charity Home. We had contacted the caretakers ahead of time to learn of their most pressing needs. Our team did all the shopping at local markets, loaded up a van, and drove out to the Home. Upon our arrival, the boys were very helpful in carrying everything into the main common room and stacking up all the supplies.
On this visit, we brought bags of rice, boxes of noodles, packages of pho, packages of seasonings, packages of meat, boxes of milk, bags of sweet rice, toothbrushes and toothpaste, laundry supplies, and toiletries,.
As a treat for being such great helpers, we handed out snack bags to all the boys, and our team stayed to visit and watch the boys play in the courtyard.
This charity visit was made on behalf and in memory of Vinh-Quang Hao Nguyen.
ABOUT THE SUOI DAU CHARITY HOME
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.
