In April 2023, our team at Lovingkindness Vietnam visited the Anh Dao Orphanage. This orphanage is home to a large group of children of all ages, and we were happy to be able to bring much-needed supplies and spend time with the children.
We spoke with the head nun, Thich Nu An Son, to get a list of the items that were most needed. We then went shopping in Ninh Hoa and loaded up a truck with everything on the list.
On this visit, we brought bags of rice, soy milk, pork, beef, fish, eggs, mushrooms, vegan pork, seitan, vegan fish pies, tofu sheets, coconut, seaweed, mung beans, black beans, peanuts, sesame seeds, sugar, cooking oil, fish sauce, siracha, dish soap, cleaning products, bath soap, shampoo, and laundry detergent.
As a yummy treat, our team prepared lots of fresh fruit for all the children to enjoy. We also brought lots of kites! The children all went to the large field behind the orphanage and had lots of fun flying the kites. It was a lovely day!
We are grateful to JL Support Services for their kind donation that made this trip possible. We are also grateful to the head nun and the children of the Anh Dao Orphanage for their warm welcome and hospitality.
