A few weeks ago, we planned a fun surprise for the children at the Khanh Son Charity Home and School. To celebrate the Lunar New Year, we arranged for each child to get a special holiday care package to take home to their families. The cost of goods skyrockets at this time of year, and the children come from poor households that struggle to provide for them.

Everyone got general supplies including a bag of rice, box of noodles, seasonings, a Banh Tet rice cake and other traditional Tet dishes. The children also got lucky money to welcome the Year of the Dragon. There were lots of smiles all around!

This charity trip was made possible through the kindhearted donations from Bichlien Nguyen and an anonymous donor. Thank you!!!


Located far to the southwest of Nha Trang, Khanh Son is a rugged mountainous region with scattered farming villages, all in poverty. Composed mainly of ethnic Raglay minorities, children do not often attend school or receive the proper care. In 2016, Sister Huong and several other nuns founded the home and school for the children of the poor communities in the region. It 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.
