In July 2021 we had a great visit with the children at the Sunflower Orphanage. Due to COVID restrictions, the orphanages are limiting the number of visitors. We wanted to make sure they had enough supplies, so coordinated with the caretakers and made a list of items they were in need of. Our lead coordinator, Mai Khanh, bought everything and drove out to the orphanage.

We brought bottles of soy sauce, packages of yogurt, kitchen supplies, laundry detergent, diapers, wipes, markers, and toiletries.

We passed around balloons to make it a festive occasion, and the children all got yummy yogurt treats. So fun!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations from Dennis Tran, Elaine Nguyen, and Daniel Cole. Thank you!!!


The Sunflower Orphanage first began taking in orphans in 1993 and is located in the heart of Nha Trang. There are large facilities and separate locations for middle school and high school students. Sunflower currently cares for about 35 orphans aged 10 to 18, plus several toddlers. The orphanage has a history of taking in street children and youths from troubled homes and coordinates its efforts with the Dai An Orphanage.
