On February 2, 2018 we brought a Tet party to the Sunflower Orphanage in Nha Trang. Sunflower cares for a large group of teenage orphans, and is the sister orphanage of Dai An, which cares for younger children.
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. Traditions include eating traditional food, such as Banh Tet, and children receiving red envelopes of lucky money. Orphanages rely upon donations for survival, and we make it our mission to see that these wonderful children receive something special for the holidays.
On this visit, we brought lots of essential supplies for the orphanage, including boxes of noodles, bags of rice, bags of beans, cooking oil, and diapers. All the children pitched in unloading the supplies, and stacking everything in the common room.
For Tet, we brought lots of Banh Tet and other treats for a fun holiday party, and each orphan got their own lucky red envelope. It was a very fun visit! Afterwards, the children opened a box of noodles and began preparing their lunches.
This visit was made possible through kindhearted donations from Dan, Van, & Devin Haynes and Scott Huynh.
