On February 4, 2017 we brought a fun Tet party to the Nhan Ai Orphanage. Nhan Ai is located in Cam Ranh, and cares for over 120 orphans in a loving countryside environment. The Vietnamese new year is the biggest holiday of the year, and we wanted to surprise the children with a special gift. One of the biggest traditions of Tet is giving children lucky money in little red envelopes, which brings good luck to both the giver and receiver to the new year. The children at the orphanages do not get to partake is this fun tradition, so we were very happy to arrive at Nhan Ai with lucky money envelopes for all of the children. The children put on a dance, and it was a spontaneous party.
These wonderful gifts for the orphans were made possible by Judith, Erin, and Shannon Turner.
