In March 2023 we had a fun visit with the children at the Thien An Charity Home. After speaking with the caretakers at the home, we made a detailed list of supplies they needed for the month. Our team bought everything at local markets, loaded up a van, and made the drive out to see the children.

When we arrived, we brought all the supplies into the main common room. On this visit, we brought racks of eggs, salt, bottles of cooking oil and fish sauce, seasonings, rice crackers, boxes of ramen, instant pho, milk, meats, chips, packing tape, laundry and cleaning supplies, school supplies, and a new gas stove.

As a treat for the children, our team of volunteers prepared sweet drinks for everyone to enjoy. It was a lovely day!

This charity trip was made possible through the kind donations from Bichlien Nguyen, Linh Lam, and Vanessa Nguyen. Thank you!!!


This loving place is located in the hilly countryside of Khanh Hoa province. There are very few schools in this region and illiteracy among children is high. The local Thien An Catholic Church sought to help the children complete their schooling, so started the Thien An Charity Home and School. The children have housing accommodations and receive their meals in a communal dining hall. Classrooms have been set up so the children can all receive the education they richly deserve.
