In November 2021 we had a great visit with the children at the Suoi Dau Charity Home. With COVID travel restrictions lifting, it was wonderful to resume in-person visits. Our team was so happy to spend time with the children once again.

For this visit, we coordinated with the caretakers and brought lots of essential foodstuff and supplies. The children helped carry everything into the courtyard and everyone gathered together. On this visit, we brought bags rice, boxes of instant noodles, milk, bamboo shoots, dried squid, mung beans, seasonings, shampoo, and dish soap.

As a fun treat, we handed out snacks to all the children. It was a lovely visit!

This charity trip was made possible through the kindhearted donations of Thi Quynh Anh Nguyen, Bichlien Nguyen, Ronald Schierer, and an anonymous donor from Vanguard. 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.
