In May 2023 we had a fun visit to the Loc Tho Charity School. This wonderful school for low-income children provides breakfast and lunch for the students. With many mouths to feed, we had reached out to the nuns at the school and asked what food and other supplies they needed this month. They provided a detailed list and our team organized a visit.

On this charity trip, we brought bags of rice, boxes of ramen, mushrooms, milk, packages of noodles, tofu sheets, sugar, vegan pork, potatoes, soy sauce, detergent, dish soap, floor soap, and kitchen supplies.

As a fun treat, our team prepared bubble tea drinks for all the children to enjoy. There were lots of smiles!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations from JL Support Services. Thank you!!!


The Loc Tho Pagoda has had a charity school since 1991, which was founded by Sister Thich Nu Dieu Y.  Sister Dieu Y dedicated her life to the children and passed away in 2014. The school is now run by the amazing and loving nuns of the Loc Tho pagoda. It’s a free primary school for poor children in the community whose parents cannot afford the costs of a public education. Textbooks, uniforms, shoes, school supplies, and teachers’ fees are all paid for by the school, and all children are welcome. The school provides breakfast and lunch for the students. The pagoda also cares for several orphans and foster children.
