In February 2023 we brought big gifts to the Nhan Ai Orphanage. The orphanage had recently completed construction of new kitchen facilities, and we asked the nuns what large project they needed next. They said they badly needed new tables and chairs for the dining room. The children eat communally in the dining hall, and the old tables and chairs needed replacing.

We said that we would sponsor all of the new dining hall furniture, and the nuns were so happy! They set about ordering everything from local suppliers, and it arrived at the orphanage a few weeks ago. The children helped getting it all set up, and to celebrate, the nuns made a big lunchtime feast. Then ice cream popsicles for dessert!

This large charity effort was made possible through the kind donations from Hanh Le, Eamonn Gahan, and Jamie Heine and Jake de boer. Thank you!!!


Founded in 1996 by Sister Nguyen Thi Bao Quyen, the Nhan Ai Orphanage resides behind the Giao Xu Phu Nhon Catholic Church in Cam Ranh, to the south of Nha Trang. The orphanage is run by the nuns of Nhan Ai and relies entirely upon donations, most of which come from people in the community. Nhan Ai is the largest orphanage that we assist and houses approximately 130 orphans in a wonderfully tranquil home.
