In April 2022 we had a great visit with the children at the Phu Quang Orphanage. We had spoken to the head nun about what the orphanage needed and arranged to have everything delivered from local markets. The children were excellent helpers and carried everything into the courtyard and then inside.

On this visit, we brought bags of jasmine rice, boxes of instant noodles, bags of dried mushrooms, many fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, vegan meat pies, soy sauce, macaroni noodles, and packages of seasonings.

As a fun treat, all the children got snacks and sweet drinks to enjoy. So fun!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of Fred Sims, Elaine Nguyen, Vanessa Nguyen, Weekes Autographs, Alysha Sims, and Minh Nguyen. Thank you!!!


The Phu Quang Orphanage was founded by Sister Thich Nu Dieu An at the Phu Quang pagoda in the early 2000’s. For many years, the orphanage has been a loving home to a group of orphans and a foster home to neighborhood children whose families struggle to support and provide for them. Phu Quang cares for just under 15 children in a loving environment.
