In early March 2020, we made a charity trip to the Sunflower Orphanage in Nha Trang. With the corona virus active in the city, the orphanages and charity homes are taking extra precautions to keep the children safe. One of those measures is limiting visits, and we wanted to make sure they had all the essential supplies and foodstuff during this difficult time.

We spoke with the caretakers and made a list of their most pressing needs. A small group of our volunteers bought everything on the list and visited the orphanage. Our team wore protective face masks as an extra layer of precaution.

The children helped stack everything in the common room. The supplies we brought included cooking oil, condensed milk, seasonings, laundry detergent, dish soap, diapers, and other necessities. To lift the children’s spirts, we handed out balloons and ice cream popsicles, and there were smiles all around.

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of KTD Services LLC, Dane Sawmiller, Daniel Cold, Suruchi Khemka, Cathy Nguyen, and Scott Huynh. 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.
