On March 25, 2018 we brought essential supplies to 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 and School 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 home survives on donations, and we asked the nuns what they needed. Our team brought bags of rice, boxes of noodles, bottles of cooking oil, bottles of fish sauce, bags of dough, seasonings, towels, and cleaning products. We passed out balloons and snacks to the children, and our lead coordinator Mai Khanh led everyone in games and singalongs. Everyone had lots of fun!
This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of Khang Do.
