We brought Christmas presents to all the children of the Nhan Ai Orphanage. We spoke with the nuns and asked what the children would like to have for Christmas. She said they would like to have new shoes and sandals, so our team went shopping and bought shoes in the children’s individual sizes. The children opened their gifts in the evening of Christmas Eve and were so surprised. It’s a joy to see big smiles on the faces of these wonderful children.

These gifts for the orphans was made possible by the kindhearted donations of Jill Nguyen, Hiep Nguyen, Molly Phillips, Elaine Nguyen, Dane Sawmiller, Cuong Nguyen, Chau Bui, and Daniel Cole. Thank you!!!


Founded in 1996 by Sister Nguyen Thi Bao Quyen, the Nhan Ai Orphanage resides behind the Giao Xu Phu Nhon Catholic Church in Cam Ranh, to the south of Nha Trang. The orphanage is run by the nuns of Nhan Ai and relies entirely upon donations, most of which come from people in the community. Nhan Ai is the largest orphanage that we assist and houses approximately 130 orphans in a wonderfully tranquil home.
