In November 2021 we had a wonderful visit to the Suoi Cat Charity Home. After the lifting of COVID travel restrictions, it was so lovely to be able to visit with the children in person once again. We had contacted the caretakers and made a list of essential supplies and foodstuff they were in need of. Our team bought everything on the list at local markets, loaded up a van, and drove out to the home.

The children helped stack everything outside the main building, next to the gardens. On this visit, we brought milk, boxes of instant noodles, hot sauce, sugar, sausages, mung beans, custard, fish sauce, dried fish, cooking oil, bamboo shoots, seasonings, detergent, and masks.

We also brought sweet cakes for everyone to share. It was a wonderful visit!

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


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 children attend public school and receive tutoring and extra lessons at the home.
