On September 15, 2017 we visited the Suoi Cat Charity Home. Suoi Cat is a poor community to the west of Nha Trang, composed of rural farming hamlets that live in poverty. The Suoi Cat Charity Home is a loving place that houses and cares for many of the community’s children whose families struggle to support and provide for them. The home is composed of young children and teenage girls, who stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The nuns who run the home provide a nurturing environment for all, ensure the children attend local public schools, and offer free daycare, kindergarten, and after school tutoring lessons.
Led by Mai Khanh, our team brought the children new school uniforms and shoes for the new school year, and stayed for a fun lunch with the nuns and children. Elderly members and families from the local village came to the school to greet our team, and we gave small allotments of food to the needy, some of whom were just returning from the farms with stacks of fresh hay on their backs. We also handed out some treats to the local children.
We were so happy to learn about the Suoi Cat Charity Home, and hope to visit again to help support their loving mission. This visit was made possible through the kind donations of the McDuffie family.
