In January 2023 the Phu Quang Orphanage had a fun Tet celebration. To celebrate the Lunar New Year, we sponsored lots of fun activities for the children. First, we spoke with the caretakers and arranged to have lots of food and general supplies delivered to the orphanage. These included packages of noodles, bags pf rice, yogurt, yogurt drinks, instant porridge, fresh vegetables, vegan ribs, vegan fish, vegan chicken, and soy sauce.

For Tet, the children had Banh Tet sticky rice cakes, Tet sweets, watermelon seeds, and soft drinks. And everyone got red envelopes of lucky money. So fun!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations from Philip Doughty, Alexander Nguyen, Doug and Mae Fronius, Fred Sims, Linh Lam, Vanessa Nguyen, and Songloc Dao. Thank you!!!


The Phu Quang Orphanage was founded by Sister Thich Nu Dieu An at the Phu Quang pagoda in the early 2000’s. For many years, the orphanage has been a loving home to a group of orphans and a foster home to neighborhood children whose families struggle to support and provide for them. Phu Quang cares for just under 15 children in a loving environment.
