In September 2022 we made a special visit to the Anh Dao Orphanage. This is one of the larger orphanages that we support, and the accumulated costs of the children’s education is very high. This includes buying new school uniforms, textbooks, school supplies, backpacks, sandals, and paying school fees. We reached out to the head nun and told her that we would cover 100% of the costs for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year for all the children. She was so happy!
Our team arrived with snacks for the children, and they all gathered in the main common room in their new school uniforms. They brought out their backpacks and books, and some tried on their new sandals. It was a lovely visit!
Sponsoring the children’s education was made possible through the kind donations from JL Support Services. Thank you!!!
ABOUT THE ANH DAO ORPHANAGE
Founded in 2004 by the Buddhist nun Thich Nu An Son, a large group of orphans are cared for at this wonderful home in Ninh Hoa, 62 kilometers north of Nha Trang. Visit the orphanage and you’ll find a well-organized and loving environment. The children are happy, and it’s a joy to sit, talk, and play with the little ones. To help provide nourishment to the children, and as a small means of earning funds, Sister An Son tends a small farm behind the orphanage, in front of the girl’s living quarters. The children eat the vegetables that are grown here, and the surplus can be sold to help pay for monthly expenses.
