In August 2023 we had a very fun visit at the Thien Tam Orphanage. After coordinating with the orphanage caretakers, we arranged to have lots of food and general supplies delivered to the orphanage. We also prepared a special surprise for two of the children who recently had birthdays.

When our team arrived at the orphanage, the children helped stack all the food and supplies that we brought on a table in the courtyard. On this visit, we brought bags of rice, boxes of noodles, various meats, cooking oil, seasonings, sugar, rice paper, soy sauce, yogurt, and fresh vegetables.

We brought out two birthday cakes for the children. After the blew out the candles, they all got presents. Next, our team prepared a big feast for everyone. It was such a fun day!

This special charity trip was made possible through the kind donations from Chuck and Phi Fiese. Thank you!!!
