Medical Supplies and a Fun Lunch at the Khanh Son Charity Home

On July 27 and August 1, 2017 we visited the new Khanh Son Charity School. We recently helped fund a charity home in the mountains of Khanh Son, to care for the area’s children and encourage them to continue their education. Sister Huong and several other nuns founded the home and school for the children of the poor communities in the region. Khanh Son consists primarily of the ethnic Raglay minority group, and poverty is endemic in this area. The Khanh Son 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. Some of the children stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The nuns provide a nurturing environment for all, ensure the children attend local public schools, and offer free daycare, kindergarten, and after school tutoring lessons.

On the 27th, we threw a fun lunch party for all the children. Sandwiches and drinks were handed out to everyone, and balloons for the little ones. It was a fun afternoon for the children, who rarely have parties thrown just for them. A few days later, on the 1st, we provided a new medicine cabinet stocked with essential medical supplies for the school. It’s a requirement that all schools in Vietnam have a medicine cabinet with first aid supplies, and we were happy to provide one for the Khanh Son Charity Home and School. The children were eager to set it up, and help Sister Huong put everything in its place.

These visits were made possible through the kind donations of Juli and Kyle. Thank you!!!
