In January 2023 we brought Tet gifts to all the children at the Khanh Son Charity Home. The Lunar New Year is the biggest holiday in Vietnam, and children from poor communities often don’t enjoy many of the traditions. We wanted to make sure the children in Khanh Son had a happy and fun-filled Tet this year.

We reached out to the nuns who run the Khanh Son Charity Home and arranged for each child in their care to receive their own Banh Tet sticky rice cake to take home to their families. Everyone also got red envelopes of lucky money. Such big smiles!

This charity event was made possible through the kind donations from Vien Lam and Kevin Spring. Thank you!!!


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.
