We brought Christmas to the girls at the Suoi Cat Charity Home & School. 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 & School 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 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.
All the girls at the home come from poor families who cannot afford presents and parties. We wanted to do something special for the children, so threw a big Christmas party. Our volunteers dressed up as Santa and handed out presents to everyone. We also brought ingredients for a big lunch, and the girls helped out team cook some yummy food in the home’s kitchen. It was a very fun party!
These gifts and the holiday party for the children were made possible through the kind donations of Mary Grace Sunga, Mark Speichert, Lee Ka Yan, Suruchi Khemka, Elaine Nguyen, Dane Sawmiller, Trang Potter, Alexander Phan, and Dan, Van and Devin Haynes.
