In March 2021 we had a lovely visit with the children at the Suoi Cat Charity Home. We had reached out to the caretakers and learned of their most pressing needs. Our team went to local markets and did all the shopping, then loaded up a van and made the drive north to the home.

The children helped carry everything into the courtyard and stacked up the provisions. We brought packages of milk, boxes of ramen noodles, bags of rice, packages of sweet rice, bottles of sriracha, chili, meats, seasonings, and kitchen utensils and supplies.

Our team toured the grounds and saw some of the girls tending the gardens and others playing with badminton sets. Our team of volunteers then prepared cool drinks for everyone to enjoy. It was a fun visit!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of Tam Luu and Philip Doughty. Thank you!!!


Suoi Cat is a poor community to the west of Nha Trang, composed of rural farming hamlets that live in poverty. The Suoi Cat Charity Home is a loving place that houses and cares for many of the community’s children whose families struggle to support and provide for them. The home is composed of young children and teenage girls, who stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The children attend public school and receive tutoring and extra lessons at the home.
