In late January 2019 we visited the Hy Vong Home for Disabled Children to celebrate the lunar new year, Tet. Hy Vong is a loving home for children with neurological disorders whose parents cannot afford the specialized care their children require. There are children with cerebral palsy, autism, as well as deaf, mute, and blind children being cared for at the home. Located in the countryside to the southwest of Nha Trang, the nuns at Hy Vong provide for the children and offer a nurturing home.
Tet is the biggest holiday of the year in Vietnam, and we love to bring the children some holiday joy on this big occasion. We coordinated with the nuns at Hy Vong, and brought all of the children gifts baskets to take home to their families. The baskets included yummy sticky rice cake Banh Tet, traditional sweets, and other goodies. At the nuns request, we also brought bags of rice and other general supplies to the Home.
The children were so happy to receive their Tet gifts!
This holiday visit was made possible through the kind donations of Alexander Pham, Dane Sawmiller, Theo Dinh, Happy Healthiness, and Hanh Le in honor of Betty Lam and Brandon Iriye.
