In October 2021 we had a great visit with the children at the Thien Tam Orphanage. We had reached out to the caretakers and made a detailed list of items they were in need of. Our team bought everything at local markets and arranged to have it delivered to the orphanage.

We brought bottles of cooking oil, packages of glass noodles, peanuts, sweet rice, oyster sauce, macaroni noodles, yogurt, a variety of fresh meats, seasonings, milk, dish soap, shampoo, and body wash.

The children stacked all the provisions on the main steps, and brought out balloons for some fun. Next, the children helped prepare a yummy lunch. So fun!

This charity trip was made possible through the kindhearted donation of Hien Le. 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.
