On February 11, 2018 we brought essential supplies and a fun Tet party to the Khanh Son Charity Home. Located in the mountainous area to the southwest of Nha Trang, the Khanh Son Charity Home is a loving place that houses and cares for many of the community’s children whose families struggle to support and provide for them. Some of the children stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The nuns provide a nurturing environment for all, ensure the children attend local public schools, and offer free daycare, kindergarten, and after school tutoring lessons.

The lunar new year, Tet, is the biggest holiday of the year in Vietnam, and we endeavor to bring the holiday joy to the children. A big tradition is preparing and enjoying the traditional food Banh Tet. We wanted these amazing children to have a fun holiday, so we arranged to have a Banh Tet party. The children and their families came to the home, and everyone sat around making their own Banh Tet rolls. Everyone had a great time! We also brought some essential supplies for the home, including bags of rice and general foodstuff.

This Tet party was made possible through the kind donations of Liz Duong, Kiera Bui, David King, and Carey Sokol in honor of Jackie Donell’s birthday.

Thank you for bringing the children so much joy!
