In June 2022 we had a great visit to the Thua Sai Home for Disabled Children with a big gift. We had asked the caretakers what they currently needed, and they had a very special request. Their old washing machine was past its prime and had broken down, and the home badly needed a new one. We were happy to oblige!

Mai Khanh and her team bought a brand new washing machine and had it delivered to the home. We also loaded up a van with some general supplies and drove out for the unwrapping. General supplies included packages of milk, boxes of instant noodles, bottles of cooking oil, and a standing fan.

The children were just finishing lunch when we arrived. As everyone gathered in the common room, the children were fascinated by the washing machine and helped unpack it. And it came in a big cardboard box to play in! Finally, we handed out ice cream popsicles for everyone to enjoy. A great day!


Located in a peaceful country setting in Cam Ranh, to the south of Nha Trang, Thua Sai offers a home and school for children with neurological disorders whose parents cannot afford the specialized care their children require. The nuns and caretakers teach the children in classrooms on the grounds, and it is a loving home to these wonderful children.
