On April 11, 2019 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 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.
We contacted the caregivers to learn of the home’s current needs and organized a trip. Our team brought bags of rice, boxes of yellow noodles, boxes of white noodles, pho, fresh milk, condensed milk, laundry detergent, dish soap, floor soap, and cooking oil.
The girls helped carry everything from the truck inside the home. Then everyone gathered in the common room as our team handed out small snack bags and balloons to play with.
This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of William Bury and Michael Phan.
