In May 2021 we had a fun visit with the children at the Suoi Dau Charity Home. We coordinated with the caretakers and brought lots of essential supplies and foodstuff they were in need of. When our team of volunteers arrived, the boys were excellent helpers and brought everything to the steps of the main building.

We brought bags of rice, instant pho, bottles of soy sauce, seasonings, condensed milk, ramen noodles, cooking oil, peanuts, soaps, toothpaste, floor soap, and shampoo.

We handed out balloons to make the occasion festive, then everyone got frozen fruit treats. There were big smiles all around!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations of Dan, Van, and Devin Haynes. Thank you!!!


The Suoi Dau Charity Home is located in Suoi Dau district near Suoi Cat, which are both poor communities to the west of Nha Trang composed of rural farming hamlets that live in poverty. The Suoi Dau Charity Home is a loving place that houses and cares for a group of the community’s young boys whose families struggle to support and provide for them. The boys stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The boys all come from the ethnic Raglay minority group. Overseen by pastor Dam Nguyen, the caretakers who run the home provide a nurturing environment and ensure the children attend local public schools and provide after-school tutoring lessons.
