In December 2022 we had a fun visit at the Thien Tam Orphanage. After reaching out to the caretakers, we brought lots of food and supplies the orphanage was in need of this month. The orphanage was decorated for Christmas and looked so festive.

On this visit, we brought bags of rice, packages of noodles, sausages, dried shrimp, dried fish, dried squid, mung beans, ketchup, condensed milk, sugar, siracha, seasonings, soy sauce, vegetables, yogurt, laundry detergent, fabric softener, and cleaning products.

As a holiday treat, we also arranged for a special meal for all the children. It was a very fun time!

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


Founded in 2004, the Thien Tam Orphanage lies 20 minutes south of Nha Trang’s city center, in Phuoc Dong ward. The orphanage is run by Nguyen Dinh Chi and his wife Nguyen Thi Kim Lien. A former orphan himself, Chi set up the orphanage in his home as a place of love and sanctuary for orphans in the community.  They currently care for 12 young children.
