On October 4, 2017 we brought the Mid-Autumn Festival to the Khanh Son Charity Home and School. Khanh Son is a mountainous region composed of poor farming communities. Many in the region are ethnic Raglay minorities, and poverty in the area is endemic. The Khanh Son Charity Home and School houses children from the community whose parents struggle to provide for them. The children stay at the home and eat in a communal dining hall. There is also free daycare and preschool.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is a fun holiday for children, as they get to eat yummy food such as mooncakes, parade about with traditional lanterns, and sometimes even catch a troupe of performers doing a lion dance. For this visit, we brought the children their own lanterns, handed out mooncakes and other treats, and had a lion dance perform. Families from the whole village came out to see the decorated lanterns and enjoy watching the lion dance. It was a very fun holiday for everyone!
This visit was made possible through the kind donations of the McDuffie family.
