In early September 2020 we had a lovely visit with the children at the Suoi Dau Charity Home. We had contacted the caretakers before our visit and made a detailed list of their current needs. Our team went to local markets to buy everything, loaded up a truck, and drove out to the home.
Upon our arrival, the boys were eager to help, and carried everything into the main common room. On this visit, we brought bags of rice, fresh meats, bottles of cooking oil, rain ponchos, cleaning products, soccer balls, shuttlecocks, and sets of chess and Co Tuong (Chinese chess). As a fun treat, we handed out snacks to all the children.
After putting everything away, the children sat in the common room and took turns playing with their new sets of chess and Co Tuong. It was a very fun visit!
This charity trip was made possible through a kind donation from Simple Solutions. Thank you!!!
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.
