On September 15, 2019 we visited the Thien Tam Orphanage with a fun surprise. Children in Vietnam have already begun the school year, and for the orphanages the costs of education can be quite high. Through our kindhearted donors, we paid 100% of the school costs for all the children! This includes paying for school uniforms, textbooks, backpacks, school supplies, shoes, and school fees. When our team came to the orphanage, they brought calculators and sandals, and funds for the new school year.

Two of the children had recent birthdays, and we brought cakes and presents for all the children to share. It was a lovely visit!

This charity trip was sponsored by a donation from Chuck and Phi Fiese. 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 of Nha Trang.  They currently care for 13 young children.
