On November 20, 2018 we visited the Suoi Cat Charity Home with lots of essential supplies. 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 young children and 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.
On this visit, we brought bags of rice, boxes of noodles, varieties of spices, packages of white noodles, and lots of cleaning products.
The girls at the Home were very helpful, and brought everything into the main common room. Our lead coordinator Mai Khanh handed out some snacks and balloons. Some of the caretakers brought out a guitar and the girls sang songs. It was a fun visit!
This charity trip was Yen Willis, Alexander Pham, Suruchi Khemka, Dan, Van, and Devin Haynes, and everyone who donated to Baby Gia’s Fundraiser on Facebook.
