On February 1, 2015 we brought the Tet new year to the Thien Tam Orphanage. This trip was made possible by the kind generosity of Alan and Anne Dickenson of Australia. Tet is the biggest holiday of the year in Vietnam, and the orphanages often lack the funds to provide the children with the traditions of the holiday. Most children in Vietnam buy new clothes for Tet, eat special foods during the holiday, have snacks and pop for a Tet party, and receive red envelopes of lucky money. Thanks to Alan and Anne, the orphans of Thien Tam enjoyed all of that!
Our lead coordinator, Hiep, purchased traditional snacks and pop, toys and games, new clothes and slippers for each orphan, and at the nuns request, milk and toilet paper for the orphanage. Hiep also bought a traditional dragon dance costume, which the children donned and played with during their party. It was a very fun visit!
