In March 2024 our team of volunteers had a wonderful visit with the children at the Ngoc Van Orphanage. We had reached out to the caretakers to learn what food and general supplies they needed this month. They gave us a detailed list, and our team went to local markets for all the shopping. On the day of the visit, they loaded up a van, and made the drive out to the orphanage.

When we arrived, our team stacked all the supplies in the courtyard and the children came out to greet us. On this visit, we brought boxes of ramen, sweets, fabric softener, laundry detergent, packages of milk, cheese, clothing hangers, and wipes.

As a yummy treat for the children, our volunteers prepared bubble tea drinks for all the children to enjoy. It was a lovely day!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations from Bichlien Nguyen, Linh Lam, Vanessa Nguyen, Alysha Sims, and Vien Lam and Kevin Spring. Thank you!!!


Located in the northern part of Khanh Hoa province, the Ngoc Van Orphanage was founded in 2020 after a big storm hit central Vietnam. There were many deaths from the storm, and several orphans were brought to the Ngoc Van Pagoda to be cared for the monks there. Since then, the orphanage has grown and now cares for about 20 small children.
