In July we had a fun visit with the children at the Ngoc Van Orphanage. After speaking to the caretakers, we set about buying them lots of food and other provisions for the month. Our team of volunteers went to local markets, loaded up a van, and made the drive north to see the children.

When we arrived, we brought everything into the main common room. On this visit, we brought racks of eggs, vegan chicken, vegan ham, cooking oil, chili sauce, mushroom varieties, seasonings, milk, boxes of ramen, and fresh fruit.

As a fun treat for the children, our team prepared yummy bubble tea drinks for all the enjoy. There were many big smiles!

This charity trip was made possible through the generosity of JL Support Services. Thank you!!!


Located in the northern part of Khanh Hoa province, the Ngoc Van Orphanage was founded in 2020 after a big storm hit central Vietnam. There were many deaths from the storm, and several orphans were brought to the Ngoc Van Pagoda to be cared for the monks there. Since then, the orphanage has grown and now cares for about 20 small children.
