In June 2023 we had a summer party for all the children at Thien An. They had finished their schooling for the year and we coordinated with the caretakers to have a special day for everyone. For each child, we brought individualized photos and certificates, pillow toys, kites, sleeping mats, clothes, and snacks. Then we had flan treats for all the little ones. It was a very fun day!

This charity  trip was made possible through the kind donations from Lorella Amato, Koshu Takatsuji, Daniel Cole, Tuan Nguyen, Philip Doughty, and Adam Anderson. Thank you!!!


This loving place is located in the hilly countryside of Khanh Hoa province. There are very few schools in this region and illiteracy among children is high. The local Thien An Catholic Church sought to help the children complete their schooling, so started the Thien An Charity Home and School. The children have housing accommodations and receive their meals in a communal dining hall. Classrooms have been set up so the children can all receive the education they richly deserve.
