In July 2021 we brought lots of essential supplies and foodstuff to the Thien Tam Orphanage. Due to rising COVID cases, Vietnam is in a severe lockdown. This has made it a challenge for our team to visit the orphanages. We are committed to helping the children, so arranged to have food and supplies brought to the orphanage. The nuns and children carried everything inside.

We brought bags of rice, packages of milk, mung beans, black beans, peanuts, tapioca flour, jelly powder, salt, fresh meats, eggs, boxes of ramen noodles, packages of yellow noodles, bottles of cooking oil, soy sauce, fish sauce, fish pies, dried shrimp, seasonings, and medicine.

We then arranged for the children to have a lunchtime treat.

This charity trip was made possible through the kindhearted donations of Hung Pham, Cuong Nguyen, Bichlien Nguyen, Minh Nguyen, and Philip Doughty. Thank you!!!


Founded in 2004, the Thien Tam Orphanage lies 20 minutes south of Nha Trang’s city center, in Phuoc Dong ward. The orphanage is run by Nguyen Dinh Chi and his wife Nguyen Thi Kim Lien. A former orphan himself, Chi set up the orphanage in his home as a place of love and sanctuary for orphans in the community. They currently care for 13 young children.
