In early June 2020, we visited the Sunflower Orphanage in Nha Trang with essential supplies for the orphanage and new clothes for the children. We had coordinated with the caretakers beforehand and learned of the orphanage’s most pressing needs. Our team did all the shopping, loaded up a van, and drove out to the orphanage. We brought bags of rice, bags of bean varieties, packages of milk, bottle of cooking oil, shampoos, and cleaning products.

As a fun surprise for the children, we handed out new clothes to everyone. The children had lots of fun trying on their new outfits. As another surprise, we brought a birthday cake for the twin girls at the orphanage. So much fun!

This charity trip was made possible through the kindhearted donations of Chris Vo, Sonny Nguyen, Peter Truong, and Dan, Van, and Devin Haynes. Thank you!!!


The Sunflower Orphanage first began taking in orphans in 1993 and is located in the heart of Nha Trang. There are large facilities and separate locations for middle school and high school students. Sunflower currently cares for about 35 orphans aged 10 to 18, plus several toddlers. The orphanage has a history of taking in street children and youths from troubled homes and coordinates its efforts with the Dai An Orphanage.
