In June 2022 we had a fun visit with the children at the Suoi Cat Charity Home. After speaking with the caretakers, we made a detailed list of items to bring. Our team shopped at local markets, loaded up a van, and drove out to the home. The children helped stack all the supplies on a table next to the gardens.

On this visit, we brought dried shrimp, ground pork, milk, rice paper, pepper, boxes of ramen, instant pho, tapioca balls, yogurt drinks, beef jerky, mayonnaise, siracha, and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, including mangoes, grapefruits, plumbs, watermelons, tangerines, rambutans, lychees, shallots, green onions, and corn.

As a fun treat, we handed out fruit cups to everyone. There were big smiles all around!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations from Philip Doughty, Bichlien Nguyen, Hung Pham, Linda Tran, and an anonymous donor. 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.
