In February 2022 we had a fun visit with the children at the Suoi Cat Charity Home. We had reached out to the caretakers and made a detailed list of general supplies and food that they were running low on. Our team went shopping at local markets, loaded up a van, and drove out to the home.

On this visit, we brought a box of dried fish, packages of sausages, milk, bottles of cooking oil, siracha, sugar, seasonings, toothbrushes, snacks, and laundry detergent.

The girls helped stack everything in the courtyard then everyone gathered around. As a fun treat, we handed out cups of fruit jello for all the children to enjoy. Next, our lead coordinator Mai Khanh organized some fun games including tug of war with all the kids. So fun!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of Philip Doughty, Weekes Autographs, Elaine Nguyen, and an anonymous donor from Facebook Giving Tuesday. Thank you!!!


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.
