In mid-January 2021 we had a fun visit to the Sunflower Orphanage. We coordinated with the orphanage’s caretakers, and brought essential supplies and foodstuff. When our team arrived, the children helped carry everything into the main common room.

We brought bags of rice, bottles of cooking oil, bottles of dish soap, bottles of hand soap, packages of seasonings, boxes of school notebooks, brooms, and many pairs of sandals.

We handed out sweet breads to all the children, and our team stayed and visited for the afternoon. It was a lovely visit!

This charity trip was made possible through a kind donation from Dan, Van, and Devin Haynes. Thank you!!!


The Sunflower Orphanage first began taking in orphans in 1993 and is located in the heart of Nha Trang. There are large facilities and separate locations for middle school and high school students. Sunflower currently cares for about 35 orphans aged 10 to 18, plus several toddlers. The orphanage has a history of taking in street children and youths from troubled homes and coordinates its efforts with the Dai An Orphanage.
